Bicolana wins 2015 APEC Video Contest



Bicolana wins 2015 APEC Video Contest for "Anna's Village"
A Bicolana was awarded top honors for a video she submitted for the 2015 APEC Video Contest.

Albayana Christhelyn Siena Quides is behind the video "Anna's Village," which depicts how technology helped to spur innovation in a small, remote community and promote its development.

The announcement was made at an award presentation on Monday alongside the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week meetings here.

Entrants to the competition provided three minute video interpretations of the impact of trade and economic development on people’s lives in the Asia-Pacific, with particular focus on the benefits of technology and innovation for micro, small and medium enterprises.

“The APEC Video Contest is intended to provide the public with an opportunity to visually articulate the inclusive economies theme and priorities being taken forward through cooperation among member economies,” explained Dr Alan Bollard, Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat.

“The story of Anna’s village creatively shows how technology and innovation can make a positive difference to people’s lives and livelihoods,” he continued. “Ms Quides’ video provides a clear picture of APEC’s work and its potential benefits to people and society as well as inspiration to Leaders, Ministers and Senior Officials for taking the region’s agenda forward.”

"Bridging Creative Economies for a Better World" produced by Robert Cristobal of Singapore and "Technology Runs the Artery of our Society” by Michael Golez of The Philippines won the competition’s second and third place honors, respectively.

The results were announced by Dr Bollard and Barbara Navarro, Director for Operations and Strategy, Public Policy and Government Relations at Google who supported the competition.

"Technology and innovation have the power to connect people from anywhere in the world by creating business solutions that can be used by anyone who has access to technology and the Internet," said Navarro. "These encourage start-ups to flourish and help bring more sectors and people into the fold of prosperity achieved through business.”

“Google is happy to be part of APEC’s efforts to get the message of inclusivity, access and integration across to the public, especially the youth,” Navarro added.

The winning videos will be screened at the International Media Center for the 2015 APEC Economic Leaders’ Week from 16-19 November 2015.

"Anna is a representation of of every Filipino child with dreams and hopes that future will be good. Anna's parents are representation of every father and mother striving hard to secure their children's future," says Ms.Quides. "I came up with Anna's Village because it is important not only to enumerate what people and communities can get out from innovation, technology, and development, but also to actually tell their story."

Meanwhile, the entry of Michael Golez from Naga City placed third in the same competition. Golez submitted a video called "Technology Runs the Artery of Our Society."
