Filipino Artist Wins Asean-Korea Multimedia Competition

22 December 2010 – The Philippine Embassy in South Korea reported that Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) graduate student Nassier Nash Anggahan won the Gold Prize for Digital Media Arts at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)-Korea Multimedia Competition and Exhibition.

The event was held at the Gallery Jinsun in Seoul last December 17.

Mr. Anggahan’s winning entry “Water,” a two-minute, 40-second single channel video, featured efforts being undertaken by various groups to rehabilitate the Pasig River.

Following the theme “ASEAN-Korean Cities: Urban Culture and Green Life”, participants freely displayed their artistic imagination on the relationship between the city and the environment through new media.

The ASEAN-Korea Centre organized the multimedia competition to facilitate exchange and to enhance mutual understanding among the youth of ASEAN member countries and Korea.

The photographs and digital art will be on display at the gallery until December 30.
