The Philippines’ national hero Dr. Jose Rizal was born on June 19, 1861. Every year, the country celebrates his birth anniversary by remembering his life and works. Considered to be a renaissance man, Dr. Jose Rizal spent his life dabbling in different fields such as the sciences, visual arts, journalism, and sports. However, it was his creative and timeless literary works that truly connected with his countrymen and changed the course of Philippine history.

For Rizal’s 160th birth anniversary, the NCCA’s Sentro Rizal wishes to highlight two artistic fields that our national hero specialized in: visual arts and literature. With the aim of urging the Filipino youth to reflect on the relevance of Rizal to the present time, Sentro Rizal is launching a digital arts contest for Overseas Filipino youth that will draw inspiration from Rizal’s poems.
