MANILA, PHILIPPINES – We spend each day of the month in the confines of our home as the world tries to heal itself from the pandemic. For the first time, we are all experiencing the “New normal”, wherein everything we used to do outside has to be done at home; from working to playing and from exercising to socializing. Also, we have become reliant on the creative works of artists and content creators to keep us busy, entertained and fair-minded.
In order to give back, Xiklab Digital, the largest Filipino digital creative agency, created a platform for artists to showcase their skills and talents in digital art called: “Zoom in on Art”. It is a gallery that features the original works of artists that can be used for online video call meetings.
From July 18 to July 31, 2020 (Philippine time), there will be a contest for “Zoom in on Art”. Artists all over the world can share their digital artwork and get a chance to win USD 500 (or PHP 25,000). The artwork with the highest score in line with the criteria will win the prize!
Polling by Xiklab Digital employees: 20%
Total number of downloads: 50%
Creativity (scored by our Creative Director): 30%
