Congratulations, mga Artista ng Bayan!
Established in 1976 with the help of Jose T. Joya, the annual Jose Joya Awards is a testament to the late National Artist Jose T. Joya who, as Dean of the UP College of Fine Arts in Diliman, played a major role in generating art and culture awareness among Cebuano students. Through the annual awards, UP Cebu Fine Arts students can showcase their works and creative prowess, and the winning student-artists are awarded cash prizes and medals for their achievements.
This year marks the 46th anniversary of the prestigious competition, providing a platform for young artists to use art as an avenue to shed light on societal issues and to continue the promotion of art and culture awareness within the locality of Cebu.
