Now on its fourth year, the Pony Show Off Digital Art Competition has been giving amateur artists and digital whiz kids a platform where they can unleash their inner digital savants and reward them with awesome prizes.
And after a month of meticulous deliberation, Pony has unveiled this year's batch of winners at a rousing awards night held at Craft Rock & Grill in Bonifacio Global City. The event was hosted by Joyce Pring and saw amped-up performances by Jejaview and Save Me Hollywood.

The second runner-up and first runner-up in each category took home P10,000 and P20,000 cash, respectively, and P5,000 worth of Pony shoes.
