A Lot of Stuff, graphic design related or whatnot are being announced left and right this week! I wish I had the money and time to attend them all, but then I might just be content with listing them all down here for your convenience:
1. The Philippine Graphic Design Awards 2011 is now accepting entries!
13 new categories and 2 New Divisions (Professional and Student) to vie for. And the best part, 20% off on the entrance fee until July 20 for those who will be submitting their entries early!
2. Graphika Manila 2011 Tickets are now on Sale – Its pretty weird that they only started selling tickets a month before the exact event – July 30, 2011, but anyway…Speaker lineup includes: Weta Digital (Visual Effects Designer of Avatar), Mike Friolo (Senior Designer of Nike who made the Designs for Pacquiao’s Nike Line), Laundry, Dan Matutina, 27+20, and Seph Mayol. Tickets are 1800 for professionals and 1500 for students but Early Birds get 300 php off until July 1!
3. Team Manila will be holding an Exhibit in commemoration of Rizal’s 150th year and their 10th Anniversary as a Design Studio – Entitled Balik sa Bayan Box, the exhibit will be held at the Ayala Museum on June 24, 2011 and is literally “packaged” as a Rizal Visual Feast – with his Journeys and Ideologies presented in balikbayan boxes, hopefully to impart how the viewer can relate his experiences, no matter how distant it may seem
4. Tickets for Cinemalaya 2011 now on sale in Greenbelt~! Ang tanong magkano – at kung may Festival Pass ba. My to watch list: Eugene Domingo Starrer “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank”, I-Libings, Ligo na U, Lapit na Me..and non-competition film Rakenrol (July 16 according to FB posts) will be shown as well.
