China Wins Gold and Philippines Makes a Mark at the 12th TBS DigiCon6 Awards


TOKYO, Japan - The cold winds officially marked the start of winter here, but there was no hibernation of talent representing the various competing regions at the 12th TBS Digicon6 Awards, held at the Marunouchi Building Hall in Chiyoda, central Tokyo.

In 2000, the Japanese television network Tokyo Broadcasting Systems Television, Inc. (TBS) established the competition-style content awards called the TBS DigiCon6, which has grown into one of the most recognized award-giving bodies in Japan. The awards were opened to the Asian region in 2006, allowing TBS DigiCon to be at the forefront of the rapidly progressing and increasingly diversified media industry. With an aim to find and encourage new creators whose original works would further enhance the content industry, TBS DigiCon6 established itself as the largest true Asian content festival.

Nov. 19, 2010 marked a big day for the animators from Japan and the rest of the region. The Philippines also fielded its first-ever representative, Nelson Caliguia Jr. and his 14-minute hand-drawn animation entry "Mutya," to the competition, along with four other works.

The 12th TBS Digicon6 Awards unfolded with the presentation of the Regional Winners where the Gold Prize recipients from China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand-who also received invitations to the awards show-were called to the stage to receive trophies and certificates.

The Japan Regional Awards were held next, wherein the Grand Prize was given to Hiroyasu Ishida for his animation, "Fumiko's Confession," which would also compete for the grand prize later that night. Other awards given out to the Japanese creators were the Outstanding Performance Awards and Encouragement Awards (with entries eligible for the grand prize); the SUNRISE Award, the Adobe Systems, Hewlett-Packard & ATI, Mitsubishi Estate and MS-TBS Awards; and five Prize for Effort recognitions.

Once that was done, the 12th TBS DigiCon6 Awards proceeded, where the first to be named were the recipients of the Encouragement Awards: Japan's "Fumiko's Confession," Hong Kong's "Temple Rider" and Singapore's "Contained."

Jury member Alex Law, a multi-awarded director from Hong Kong, was on hand to give out the awards. "The standard is really high- So high that I know if I had entered, I would not have been chosen." He then quickly adds, with much humor, "As a matter of fact, I did enter- and I failed!"

Another Jury Member, the Korean director Kwak Jae-Yong who is known best for his film "My Sassy Girl," said they "judged from different angles" to find the winners that "reflect the different feelings that the jurors have."

Yuichi Ito, a clay and CG animation director for Japan's I.TOON Ltd., meanwhile, talked about the struggles of filmmakers. "If you were to become a creator, you may struggle once again, but remember this experience," the juror advised the participants. …
