Vision Petron, the award-winning national student art competition of industry leader Petron Corporation, is celebrating 15 years of fueling creativity with the theme Lakbay Kasiyahan: Our Journey of Happiness.
As a jubilant milestone we want to resolve what makes us chuckle and even laugh in uproar. More than the surveys and studies, Filipinos have proven time and again we are one of the happiest people on earth. Probably being rooted on our abiding faith, we always look at the bright side and hope for the best while still managing to smile at any of life’s given situation. With Lakbay Kasiyahan as this year’s theme, Vision Petron dwells deeper into this comfort of our known cheerful character. How science blames our exposure to abundant sunlight, basking us with vitamin D translates to the lightness of our being or could it be we live in the freest form of government? No matter where our national character emanates, happiness can be best experienced with a loved one, family and friends, or joining in our community’s festivals and festivities.
Now open for entries, the 2015 Vision Petron competition is open to all talented students, aged 16-28, enrolled in a regular university or college course, or in tutorial art, photography or video class.
