Resorts World Manila (RWM), the Philippines’ premier integrated tourism and entertainment destination, is holding the sixth Pinoy Ultimate Jeepney (PUJ) design competition.
PUJ is a celebration of Filipino culture and heritage through the visual arts, with the unique approach of using actual franchised and functioning jeepneys as the canvas. First launched in 2010, the competition has turned 46 artist concepts into mobile works of art, many of which are still actively plying their routes around the metro.
Going beyond promoting arts and culture, PUJ also works to uplift and develop the best traits of the Filipino through the jeepney drivers, whose vehicles are selected as the mobile canvasses for the competition. The PUJ drivers are given professional training and character development seminars to help make them better citizens, enhance the riding experience of their passengers, and make them exemplars among professional drivers.
RWM is inviting college-level artists to be a part of the PUJ by submitting jeepney art design concepts through their respective universities.
Artists may join either individually or as a team, with a maximum of ten (10) members.
Participating colleges and universities can choose up to five (5) entries to represent their institutions in this inter-school competition, and send these to RWM by 6:00 PM on November 8, 2016 for shortlisting.
RWM will select 10 finalists by November 9 from the total pool of entries received from all participating colleges and universities. The 10 finalists will be assigned a partner jeepney driver and jeepney unit for modification. RWM will provide a maximum of P80,000.00 for the material and production costs for rendering the designs. The finished jeepneys will be exhibited at the Newport Mall in RWM on December 14.
The winning artwork, as determined by an independent judging panel, will win a P240,000.00 cash prize for the artist or design team and P60,000.
00 for their school, as well as the honor of having designed the Pinoy Ultimate Jeepney.
