Metrobank Art & Design Excellence

From being a purely painting competition, the Metrobank Foundation expanded its arts program to include the sculpture competition in 2004. This expansion gave birth to the rebranding of the program into Metrobank Art & Design Excellence (MADE). Since then, the search for artistic excellence in the field of sculpture has evolved from young amateurs to professional sculptors.


The Metrobank Art and Design Excellence Sculpture Competition is open to all:

  • Filipino sculptors who have staged at least one solo exhibition
  • Must have not won in past Metrobank (MADE) Sculpture Competition

  • one or a combination of the following materials: resin, fiberglass, glass, metal, wood, stone  (concrete), fired clay (e.g.terracotta or stoneware)


  • Not more than 40 kilos

The piece should NOT be signed by the artist

The use of a medium other than the specified medium will be a ground for disqualification

Winners have the privilege to be a part of the alumni organization MADE-Network Of Winners (NOW) (see list of past winners).
