Nominations Accepted for New National Artists


MANILA, Philippines - The National Commission for the Culture and the Arts and the Cultural Center of the Philippines are now accepting nominations for the Order of the National Artists Awards until November 30, 2012.

The National Artists Award, or Orden ng Gawad Pambansang Alagad ng Sining, is the highest national recognition given to Filipino individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of Philippine arts, particularly music, dance, theater, visual arts, literature, film and broadcast arts, and architecture and its allied arts.

Established Proclamation No. 1001 dated April 27, 1972, the award aims to give appropriate recognition and prestige to Filipinos who have made significant contributions to the cultural heritage of the country and dedicated their lives to their works to forge new paths and directions for future generations of Filipino artists. Their artistic accomplishments are at its highest level and promote creative expression as significant to the development of a national cultural identity.

The first award was conferred posthumously later that year on visual artist Fernando Amorsolo. Since then, about 50 artists including Nick Joaquin, Lino Brocka, Atang dela Rama, Lucio San Pedro, Virgilio Almario, Bienvenido Lumbera, Abdul Mari Asia Imao, Ildefonso Santos, Eddie Romero, F. Sionil Jose, and Ben Cabrera have been given the awards.

"Nominations for the National Artists Awards may be submitted by government and non-government cultural organizations and educational institutions, as well as private foundations and councils," says NCCA chairman Felipe de Leon Jr.

Those who want to nominate an individual must submit a duly accomplished nomination form, with cover letter signed by the head or designated representative of the nominating organization. The letter should be accompanied by the Board Resolution approving the said nomination. Attached are a detailed curriculum vitae of the nominee, list of his or her significant works (categorized according to the criteria), latest photo of the nominee (either 5 X7 or 8 X 11), pertinent information materials on the nominee's significant works (on digital form), copies of published reviews, and other document that may be required. …
