Albay lass wins APEC 2015 video contest

LEGAZPI CITY, Nov. 20 (PIA) – “Anna’s Village” made by Christhelyn Siena Quides from Pio Duran, Albay won first place at the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) video contest.

“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,” Quides said.

She said the video shows the child Anna as representation of every Filipino child with dreams and hopes that future will be good while her parents are representation of every father and mother striving hard to secure their children’s future.

The video features how technology helped to spur innovation in a small, remote community and promote its development.

“The story of Anna’s village creatively shows how technology and innovation can make a positive difference to people’s lives and livelihoods,” said Alan Bollard, executive director of the APEC secretariat.

Bollard said the video provides not only a clear picture of APEC’s work and its potential benefits to people and society but also inspiration to leaders, ministers and senior officials in taking the region’s agenda forward.

The contestants made a 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,” Bollard said.

The second and third place winners were “Bridging Creative Economies for a Better World” by Robert Cristobal of Singapore and “Technology Runs the Artery of our Society” by Michael Golez of the Philippines.(EAD/SAA-PIA5-Albay)
