Two Polytechnic University of the Phillipines students shone bright in the biggest ArtPetron contest to date.
Beating over a thousand other entries by students from all over the country, Ronald Jeresano and James Brian Ona emerged as among the 12 Grand Prize winners in Painting and Photography categories of ArtPetron7 National Student Art Competition.
The two received their prizes at the Petron MegaPlaza in Makati City, Aug 28. They interpreted this year's theme "Alay sa Palatandaang Bayan" with two of Manila's most important landmarks.
Jeresano did a realistic watercolor rendition of the Fort Santiago gateway titled "Revealed History, Behind Mystery". Ona on the other hand captured in morning sunshine the soaring steel arches of Quezon Bridge in Quiapo. His black and white photo is Ona's second straight grand prize win.
Ona was a former member of the PUP College of Communication's photgraphic organization, Sinag Club.
