About Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prizes in Art Criticism

ABOUT THE PRIZES

Two (2) winners will be selected from the shortlisted writers—one for Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prize – The Philippine Star and another for Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prize – ArtAsiaPacific Magazine. The winner for each prize will be chosen by the partner publications from the top three (3) entries. Announcement of winners will be during the Ateneo Art Awards ceremony tentatively scheduled for 25 August 2019 at the Ateneo Art Gallery, Arts Wing, Areté, Ateneo de Manila University.

As one of the main goals of the prize is to get art criticism into the public sphere, the winner of the Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prize for The Philippine Star will be awarded a regular column to be published twice a month or 24 articles for a year, under the column, ‘Platforms’ in the Arts & Culture section of the paper. The winner of the Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prize for ArtAsiaPacific Magazine will be contributing to this bi-monthly publication, with a total of six articles for a year. In addition, the two winners of the Ateneo Art Awards – PKL Prizes in Art Criticism will contribute to the next edition of Perro Berde, the annual publication of the Embassy of Spain and Instituto Cervantes.
