The CCP has selected the final list of awardees for the 2018 Thirteen Artist Awards (TAA). The 2018 Thirteen Artist awardees are Zeus Bascon, Bea Camacho, Cian Dayrit, Janos Dela Cruz, Carlo Gabuco, Dina Gadia, Guerrero Habulan, Eisa Jocson, Doktor Karayom, Raffy T. Napay, Archie Oclos, Lynyrd Paras, and Shireen Seno.


The Thirteen Artists exhibition was mounted every two years from 1970 to 1980, and only again in 1988, 1990, 1992, and 1994. It was revived in 2000, and changed to a triennial format and given an age limit of 40, which is continued to this day. The exhibit opening on 18 October 2018 will be highlighted with the formal recognition of winners. This year’s exhibition is curated by Ronald Achacoso and the trophy designed by Eric Zamuco, both TAA awardees (2000 and 2003, respectively).
