In its continuing effort to promote creativity and the drive to produce rich media experiences with the newest PCs and Ultrabooks, Intel has recently wrapped up its Sing to Win 2 online video contest. Open to all college students, the competition is the successor to the original Sing to Win back in 2011. A ceremony was held recently to award the winners of the contest, as well as holding a sendoff party to outgoing Intel General Manager Mr. Ricky Banaag.
The Intel Sing to Win 2 is a combination of a singing, dancing, and video editing contest. Contestants film themselves singing one of 5 pre-determined songs and are given the creative freedom to edit the video using their preferred PC. First prize winner went to Shobert Halilig, a Multimedia Arts student of Asia Pacific College; second place winner was a group from De La Salle University Dasmarinas comprised of Nikki Mae Ilagan, Florabel Hernandez, Leonahlyn Drilon and Stephanie Deuda; and finally, third place went to a Polytechnic University of the Philippines student named Felicidad Olituquit.
Outgoing Intel General Manager Mr. Ricky Banaag was there to award the winners, who received an Ultrabook to continue their exploits into video production and rich media. Mr. Banaag, who is taking early retirement, will be succeeded by Calum Chrisholm effective this April.
Intel also took their Sing to Win 2 on a roadshow to various universities and malls in and around the Metro, promoting the use of creative tools and the capabilities of Ultrabook line they have inspired.
The Technoclast would like to congratulate the winners of the event and bid sir Ricky Banaag our best wishes!
