WHAT IS THE LAST DRAW?

As part of our commitment to developing upcoming Filipino artists for the competitive global art industry, we at Gunship Revolution have laid out the parameters for a Nation-wide Anime Art Competition meant to inspire and coax out not only the best in Philippine artistic talent but also in Philippine craftsmanship and ingenuity. If you are interested in partnering with us in such an endeavor, we would like to hear what you think and how we may better serve this goal together.

THEME: TRIAL BY COMBAT

The theme of the competition will be "Trial by Combat", inviting artists to depict scenes of face-to-face combat where the ultimate prizes are life and liberty. We hope to inspire artists to go beyond depictions of violence and explore themes like the relationship between justice and power, the body language of innocence and guilt, and how far people might go to defend their honor.

STYLE: Anime style / Manga style

Given its ubiquity and prominence in the world scene, Gunship Revolution believes that the Anime/Manga style is more than just a series of visual cues rooted from a single culture or nationality but a web of inter-cultural and international influences that is now established as a global genre of Contemporary Art. Judging will be based according to standards of the style as it is engaged and enjoyed around the world.
