Freeway Art Bag Design Competition 2013

At Freeway, fashionalism is not just about Philippine fashion.  It’s about dedication and commitment.  Early next year, Freeway shares its mission to champion the spirit of fashionalism as the brand launches its first ever Art Bag Design Competition – the winning designs will be put into production as part of Freeway’s National Artist Collector’s Series Summer 2013  together with the featured National Artist which has yet to be revealed. Freeway encourages young creative minds to showcase Filipino talent and fulfill Freeway’s vision to showcase Philippines Art & Culture through innovative interpretations.  To join the competition, submit your design online – it can be digital image, photo of own artwork in different mediums (pen and ink, oil, watercolor, pastel and others).  Designs must include the elements of nationalism, Filipino pride or country’s art and culture.  All approved submissions will be uploaded on Freeway’s Facebook Page for voting. Contest period starts January 1 to February 15, 2013. The winning designs will be produced by Freeway with the designer’s name on the hangtags.  Winning designers will also receive cash prizes, shopping spree and gifts from sponsors.
