The Metrobank Foundation is now accepting nominations for the Metrobank Foundation Prize for Achievement in Sculpture (MPAS). Now on its 7th year, MPAS is an annual competition under the Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE) which honors mid-career sculptors who have substantial contribution to the development of Philippine sculpture.

MPAS nominees should 1) not be more than 50 years old; 2) a Filipino citizen (if based abroad, the nominee should have sustained output in the Philippines); 3) well regarded by the art community; 4) have sustained output; and 5) have significant contribution to the development of Philippine Sculpture. The winner will be awarded with a Roberto Feleo designed medallion and a cash prize of PhP 200,000.

Qualified sculptors may be nominated by curators or owners of galleries and museums, heads of art organizations, deans of art academic institutions, former MPAS winners, and former MADE judges. Nominations should be submitted on or before March 5, 2010. For more information, contact the MADE Secretariat through 898-8856,, or through
