On its 15th anniversary, Vision Petron challenged students from around the country to turn the theme “Lakbay Kasiyahan: Our Journey of Happiness” into art. This is what the winning entries looked like.
The national student art competition accepted entries from July to August 2015. It did so in 4 categories: Painting, Photography, T-shirt Art Design, and Video-Making. The goal was to highlight the cheerful character of the Filipino people, because no matter what sh*t life throws at us, we somehow manage to see the brighter side of things.
