PUP Alumnus bags First Prize on SEADOCS 2010 Despite the fight of the students for their right

of education and the ³NO TUITION FEE HIKE ON SUC¶s´, the students of the university were not just nationalistic on the political aspects. Some use their knowledge and skills, making names in the International scene. In the recently held, Southeast Asian Student Documentary Award (SEADOCS 2010), an alumnus of PUP bagged the first prize besting other students from the region. Nash Anggahan submitted his entry titled ³Iskwater´ ± a play on words using the colloquial term for informal settlers ³squatter´ and the aspect of ³water´ since the documentary was filmed by a waterway, the Estero de San Miguel. Nash depicts the irony of being industrially progressive and yet unmindful of environmental concerns. Out of more than 600 entries from different countries, Nash Anggahan¶s entry won the grand prize for his video ³Water.´ Under this year¶s theme, ³ASEAN·Korean Cities: Urban Culture and Green Life,´ Runners up in the video category are Janice Chandra from Indonesia and Nazar Syafiq bin Nazri from Malaysia. Winners flew to South Korea for the multimedia workshop held from Dec. 13 to 16 at the Seoul Arts Space Mullae in the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture, Mullae-dong. The awards ceremony followed on Dec. 17 at Gallery Jinsun in Palpan-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul. Nash Anggahan received $500 USD cash prize and up to an additional $5,000 USD to produce a full length documentary production.
