06 Sep A Good Taste In Rum Equals Your Good Taste In Art
World-famous Filipino premium rum Don Papa Rum is inviting Filipino artists to reimagine and reinterpret its award winning label and design its secondary packaging through the 2nd Don Papa Rum Art Competition 2016.
Officially launching this September and now on its second year, the competition is open to all Filipino artists, 21 years and above, who have participated in an art exhibit at least once (as an individual or with a group) and/ or represented by an art gallery in the Philippines.
The challenge is straightforward: reimagine an artwork that encapsulates an original interpretation of the magical realist world of Sugarlandia based on the island of Negros, home to the country’s finest sugar canes that give Don Papa Rum its signature flavor; Papa Isio, who inspired the revolutionary brand; and everyone’s premium rum brand that elevates the amber liquid into a celebrated luxury drink. Entries can be in the form of painting/drawing, photography, print making, and typography. Top 10 entries will be exhibited at the 2017 Art Fair Philippines.
In addition to getting an exclusive opportunity to stamp his/her design on limited edition canisters for Don Papa Rum that will be distributed locally and internationally, this year’s winner will bag an all-expense paid four-week Artistic Ambassadorship Sojourn in Florence, Italy, complete with round trip airfare tickets, allowances and accommodations by Don Papa, including entrance passes to top museums in Florence to draw inspiration from the world’s best galleries in art and design.
“Don Papa Rum aims to cultivate and honor Filipinos’ creativity and passion for the arts. We are looking forward to witness how Filipino artists will reflect and embody Don Papa Rum’s passion for quality, heritage, and authenticity through their artworks,” says Monica Llamas-Garcia, Co-Founder and Head of Brand and Communications.
