Great news for all artistic high school students out there. CFA, in cooperation with Dong-A and Faber Castell Philippines, will hold a contest series with the goal of imparting Gospel values and empowering creativity among the youth. Dubbed “KAMADA 2014” (Kabataang Malikhain at Dalubhasa), KAMADA will start with an on-the-spot cover design contest. High school students will be given a chance to design the covers of CFA magazines.

Gospel K Magazine also known as Gospel Komiks Magazine is meant for high school students as a supplemental reading material for Christian Living classes and religious instruction. Presenting the Sunday Gospel by way of true-to-life stories, Gospel K addresses young readers’ interests and their concerns about faith. On the other hand, Gospel Now Magazine caters to late-high school and early college readers, but most adults will find it appealing as well. It is intended to make the study of the Gospels “layman-friendly” reflected in its slogan – “Everyday Gospel for everyday people.”

KAMADA 2014 is a one day event on the spot cover making contest that will be held at CFA, 4427 Old Sta. Mesa St. Sta Mesa, Manila on October 3, 2014 (Friday). All high school students wanting to join the contest must register first on the website http://bit.ly/KAMADA2014. The first place and second place artworks will be the cover of Gospel K Magazine and Gospel Now Magazine respectively for the December-January issues. Cash prizes will also be given to the top three winners. All students joining the contest will get free drawing and art supplies courtesy of Dong-A and Faber Castell.
