FOUR WINNERS will be chosen by Léon Gallery for its Many-Faced Ang Kiukok and His Role in Filipino Art Video & Written Essay Competition, held in collaboration with The Philippine Star. The winners will be announced during the Kingly Treasures Auction 2019 Cocktails on Nov. 27. The first dual media competition of its kind in the Philippines, it was established in honor of National Artist for the Visual Arts, Ang Kiukok (1931– 2005). Meant to promote not only the writing of criticism on, and the production of commemorative videos about, the late National Artist, the competition encourages further appreciation of the master Cubist known for his highly expressionist depictions of violence, conflict, madness, and struggle. The competition is open to all professional and amateur artists and writers as well as to students, art aficionados, and bloggers who are encouraged to prepare a five-minute video or a 250 word essay on one of the Ang Kiukok paintings featured in the Kingly Treasures Auction 2019 — Seated Figure, Screaming Figures, Mother and Child, and Table with Fruit. Prizes will be given for the Best Creative Video Essay Award and the Best Essay Award. The Audience Choice Award for Best Video Essay and Audience Choice Award for Best Written Essay Award will be awarded to the posts garnering the most number of aggregated likes on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Winners of the Best Creative Video and Essays will each get P20,000 while the Audience Choice awardees will each receive P10,000. Participants are encouraged to post as many entries on their social media accounts with the hasthtags #KinglyTresuresAuction2019 and #ManyFacedKiukokLeonGallery until Nov. 21. The Kingly Treasures Auction 2019 will be held at 2 p.m. on Nov. 30 at Eurovilla 1, Legazpi St., Legazpi Village, Makati.
