Visual effects artist Mary Grace Tenorio of Quezon City won the second prize for her work entitled “Tanikalang Bakal” which symbolizes the analogy of power and control, master and slave relationship, and the presence of hierarchy in the society. Rolf Domini Campos, a fine arts major at the Far Eastern University, depicted his personal struggle to finish his studies in his piece “Unfinished Bout” which bagged the third prize under the same category.

A first timer in joining the MADE competition and a self-taught artist, Lester Rodriguez of Binangonan, Rizal was declared grand prize winner in the water media on paper category of the painting competition for his masterpiece entitled “The Hidden Agenda” which addresses the issues on peace talks in the country. Inspired by a television advertisement of one of the presidentiables during the recently concluded national elections, “Patungo” by Kathleen Yeo, a fine arts major at the College of Holy Spirit, Manila, was awarded the special prize under the same category.

For the sculpture competition, Philippine High School for the Arts teacher Marc Vincent Cosico was named as the grand prize winner. His piece “Superhero Complex” is a reflection of his take on the commercialization of the Filipino tradition of penitensya. Dennis Ticao, a student of Carlos Hilado Memorial State College and a native of Talisay City, Negros Occidental, was declared the special prize winner. His entry entitled “Riders of the Storm” depicts the struggle of Filipino families against poverty which he has experienced firsthand.

Architect Miguel Angelo Mañosa, who finished his bachelor’s degree in architecture at the University of Santo Tomas and his master’s degree in design science at the University of Sydney, bested his peers and emerged as the grand prize winner in the architecture competition. The design of his entry “Fandiño Residence” is characteristic of contemporary Philippine green architecture that maximizes passive cooling, natural light and the use of active façade systems, and utilizes recycled wood and indigenous materials.

Freelance interior designer Maureen Grace de Jesus of Muntinlupa City bagged the grand prize in the interior design competition. With a modern tropical design concept, her entry entitled “Rise of the Fallen” highlights the use of reclaimed wood which also serves as the focal point of the design.
