‘UOB PAINTING OF THE YEAR’ COMPETITION
Every year, we give our level 3 kids the opportunity to submit their artwork to UOB’s annual Art Competition! The students would start off this three month venture by thinking & developing a concept of their choice, which they then would visualize through a variable medium. It is through this competition where our students are able to showcase their artwork to a large scale audience, whilst also developing their imagination & enhancing their knowledge on topics they are passionate about. The amount of students who participate in this competition increases each year, & this is just the tip of the artworks submitted this year! Fantastic job guys! You should be very, very proud of yourselves, because we most definitely are!
‘Driven by a passion to encourage talented artists in their creative pursuits, United Overseas Bank (UOB) started the Painting of the Year competition in Singapore in 1982. Today, the annual art competition is the longest-running in Singapore and one of the most prestigious in Southeast Asia.
Held in four countries in the region – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand – the UOB Painting of the Year competition has helped to discover many talented emerging artists and recognise several established professionals who have contributed significantly to the development of the Southeast Asian art scene.’ (Taken from the UOB Painting of the Year website)
