GLOBALTRONICS Launches the 3rd National Digital Arts Awards

Mandaluyong City (August 11, 2015) – Globaltronics officially launched the National Digital Arts Awards (NDAA) 2015 under the theme #DigitalPinoyAko last August 7 at 500 Shaw Zentrum Events Pavilion. About 600 people mostly student participants, media agencies, corporate and marketing executives, and sponsors attended the kick-off party.

The event featured three of the top disk jockeys in the country DJ Jet Boado, DJ Callum David, and DJ Tom Taus. The party had open bar for everyone in celebration of the continuing rise of the digital arts in the country. All the guests were treated to a programme of exciting entertainment and surprises.

 “We want to give way to all the students who dream to be part of the digital arts community in the country. This is their chance to highlight their talents in creating works using digital media. We believe that this is the best time for them to join the awards because this is the biggest NDAA so far” stated by Fortunato Agbayani, COO of Globaltronics. NDAA is an advocacy of Globaltronics that aims to highlight the skills and talents of digital artists in the country.

Watch out for the NDAA2015 Visayas & Mindanao Road Show in the following:

The National Digital Arts Awards 2015 #DigitalPinoyAko is now open for digital print and motion graphic entries from Filipino student digital artists. The deadline of submission is until October 16. A total of 1 million of cash and prizes is up for grabs in this year’s edition of the NDAA. Awards Night will be held on January 15, 2016 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila, Pasay City.

From among the eleven (11) judges of the contest, one is from Naga City. Benedick Bana is the current Chairperson of Department of Digital Arts and Computer Animation of Ateneo de Naga University. He teaches Animation and Computer Graphics in ADNU for almost 11 years. He is also a freelance digital artist. He collaborated with Tom Freeman “Freematik” in Darkmoon, a motion comics with music soundtrack where he created all the character designs, environments, and props of all the scenes. He also worked as a freelance artist in Topside Minigames, and worked with international digital character designers such as Alexander Snow, and Scott Peterson for an indie games. With this inclusion, let's hope that many Nagueno and Bicolano animators join this year's NDAA.
