Established in 2004 to honor the memory of its founding benefactor Fernando Zobel de Ayala (1924-1984), whose support of young Filipino visual artists left an indelible mark in Philippine art history, the Ateneo Art Awards are given to Filipino visual artists below the age of 36 for outstanding works in an exhibition between 2 May 2010 and 1 May 2011.

On its eighth year, the Ateneo Art Awards takes the theme "Anatomy of Autonomy," dissecting and surveying artistic thought in the contemporary Philippine art scene. Unbound by any cultural, social, academic or even aesthetic dogma, the creative spirit of young Filipino visual artists is duly recognized.

From the 12 shortlisted exhibitions/artworks, 3 are chosen as winners. The winning artists are then invited to apply for international residency grants funded by the Ateneo Art Gallery and its partner institutions: Common Room Networks Foundation in Bandung, Indonesia, La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre in Bendigo, Australia, Artesan Gallery in Singapore, Art Omi in New York, USA and Liverpool Hope University in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

The Ateneo Art Awards are presented by the Ateneo Art Gallery, Shangri-la Plaza, SMART, Metro Society, Y-style of the Philippine Star, and the New York Art Project, funded by Marcel Crespo.

The works of the short-listed artists will be exhibited at the Grand Atrium of the Shangri-la Plaza, Edsa corner Shaw Boulevard from 5-15 August 2011 and at the Ateneo Art Gallery, Level 2 Rizal Library Special Collections Building, Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City from 20 August – 10 September 2011. The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 11 August 2011, 5:30pm at the Grand Atrium of the Shangri-La Plaza.
