NCCA 2013 Ani ng Dangal Awardees official list.

February of every year is National Arts Month in the Philippines. Then President Corazon C. Aquino made this declaration in 1991 via Presidential Decree 683. For two decades the NCCA has been supporting various local projects and special events during National Arts Month to showcase the best of the Philippine artistic and cultural scene. 

In 2009, the NCCA elevated what has been a national undertaking into a consolidated international event that is the Philippine Arts Festival (PAF). PAF is the NCCA’s contribution to the celebration of National Arts Month. Its tagline is “Ani ng Sining”, and the festival has proven through the years that is indeed a harvest for the arts.

Ani ng Dangal Trophy

The Ani ng Dangal Trophy is a stylized sarimanok sculpted by National Artist for Visual Arts, Abdulmari Asia Imao. In Imao’s hands the Maranao mythical bird is masterfully transformed into a mono-winged creature with the PAF rice stalk logo incorporated in the rampant wing’s feathers. The creature soars above a globe symbolizing the height of artistic achievement in the global stage.
