The 29th Visual Arts Competition
The Directories Philippines Corporation (DPC) and Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) have been holding the Visual Arts Competition (VAC) since 1987. The VAC is a nationwide digital photography contest for students. They hold VAC every year to revel students’ artistry.
If you are 15 to 24 years old, a current student of any accredited school in the Philippines, then you’re very much eligible to join the contest.
This year’s theme is “Past Meets Present.” The challenge is to capture images that can inspire fresh ways of seeing our country and our culture. It could be conflicting or harmonious, amusing or sublime. The top four winning pictures will grace the cover of the DPC PLDT White Pages and Yellow Pages directories.
