Celebrating its 15 years of fueling creativity, Petron Corporation’s award-winning national student art competition Vision Petron calls for entries for this year’s contest with the theme Lakbay Kasiyahan: Our Journey of Happiness. Filipinos have proven time and time again that we are one of the happiest people on earth, always looking at the bright side, hoping for the best, and managing to smile at any of life’s given situation. With the theme Lakbay Kasiyahan, 2015 Vision Petron seeks to grasp what makes Filipinos chuckle or laugh in uproar. The 2015 Vision Petron competition is open to all 16-28 years old students, enrolled in a regular university or college course, or in tutorial art, photography, or video class.
