Members of the team must be actively enrolled in at least 3 units in their particular schools; certification from the school is required. There can only be one competition entry per team. Members of the team can only join once; a team member cannot be part of another team.

Can students from different schools comprise a team?
The 143s organizers encourage that team members are enrolled from the same school. Not only will you carry your school's name but they can also assist you in getting corporate partners. Furthermore, coordination and cooperation will be simpler if you come from the same university.

How much is the Registration Fee?

4th Floor Cultural Center of the Philippines
Deadline for registration is at 5:00 pm on March 11, 2009. Forms are available at the CCP or downloadable from 143sInstallAve.multiply.com

Is it necessary to get a corporate partner?
Yes, it is necessary. Having a corporate tie-up is part and parcel of the competition parameters. One of the goals of this contest is to provide a meaningful platform of collaboration between the youth and the business sector where the young leads the way in advocating recycling thru sound and artistic design, as it paves another track for corporations to get aligned with sustainable green habits. Moreover, it will be easier for the teams to source out their materials if they have a ready resource from which they can get all the traditional and non-traditional waste they need to erect their conceptual trees. Lastly, teams are required to provide a separate listing of the recyclable materials to be utilized; this should be derived from a mix of the traditional or non-traditional waste from the team's corporate partner.

I am graduating this April, can I still be part of the team?
Yes, you can. As long as you can provide a photocopy of school registration form or a certification from the school that signifies that you are enrolled in at least 3 units during the submission of your entry (which is from March 18-25, 2009). This is part of the submission requirements.

I am a graduate student, can I still join?
Yes, just provide the necessary certifications needed that provides proof of your enrollment during the submission of your entry (which is from March 18-25, 2009). However, you must be part of a team. A team may have 2-5 members. All team members must be enrolled students.

Should all members of the team register?
Only 1 accomplished 143s Registration Form per team. Please be reminded that members of the team can only join once; a team member cannot be part of another team.

What is the difference between traditional and non-traditional waste?
Traditional waste items include paper, plastic, bottles, tin cans, metal and cartons, while nontraditional wastes include ink cartridges, electronic waste, computer printers and appliances.

What is an installation?
Installations are defined as follows:
From "The University of the Philippines Cultural Dictionary For Filipinos"
An artistic form which foregrounds the interplay of figure and space or immediate environment. It often makes use of found objects and indigenous materials and is often transitory but renewable.

From "The Bulfinch Guide to Art History"
A three-dimensional work of art which uses a variety of materials, sometimes including humans or other living things. Installation art is unconventional and often challenging, and may be inside a gallery or elsewhere. Sometimes the challenge lies in seeing a familiar set of objects placed in a different context; an artist may respond to a particular issue through a collection of objects; the installation may sculptural overtones and may relate to technology arts.

Can we draw on different sheets of paper? What medium is required?
Yes, you can use different sheets as you need. However, each team is required to submit their design proposal entry on A4 format, compiled in a folder. Take note that no identification marks (logos, names, initials and the like) should appear on the entries. Only the registration number should be evident on the front cover of the folder and the pages contained therein. Teams may use any print medium to convey their design proposal.

Can we use Filipino in our text?
Yes you can.

This is a great contest which my friends and I would like to join, however, we are Political Science majors. Are we barred from joining?
If you think you and your friends have the creativity and know-how to design and execute a visually arresting and aesthetically pleasing conceptual tree from recyclable materials sourced from a corporate partner, join 143s by all means. Just make sure that all the documentary and submission requirements are fulfilled and submitted on the appointed deadlines.
