|Pioneer and Partners|
Aside from insuring Filipinos and the things we value most, Pioneer has also been advocating for the artistic community through insurance coverage and sponsorships. The life and non-life insurance company, established in 1954, has already supported theater plays such as Miss Saigon, The Little Mermaid, and Trumpet's N.O.A.H.
Last year, Pioneer rolled out the Stories of Friendship Video Competition where participants were encouraged to share their take on friendship via a three-minute video. Ateneo de Davao's My Friends Who Ran won first prize.
This year, as a means of continued support for the Filipino talent, the company is holding Pioneer Stories of Hope Playwriting Competition. This new campaign paves the way for fresh ideas from young, aspiring playwrights who have 'hope-full' stories to tell.
College students nationwide are invited to share stories about Filipino resilience and positivity despite challenging situations through a one-act play written in English, Filipino, or Taglish. Submission of scripts is from September 1 to November 27, 2015. The winner will be announced on December 14, 2015 and will be awarded a P25,000 cash prize plus insurance coverage from Pioneer. Visit www.storieslab.ph for complete competition details.
Further giving recognition to exceptional stage plays and playwrights, Pioneer has organized the Virgin Labfest 11 Campus Tour this September and October. Please read more details and schedules, here.
