Another year, another round of wins

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

FOR more than 30 years, the Kan­cil Awards has been one of the big­gest ad­ver­tis­ing awards in Malaysia. The pres­ti­gious award gives recog­ni­tion to great ideas, peo­ple and agen­cies while seek­ing new tal­ents with fresh cre­ative minds.

The One Academy Ad­ver­tis­ing and Graphic De­sign stu­dents rose to the oc­ca­sion and seized a col­lec­tive to­tal of six Stu­dent Kan­cil Awards – one gold, two sil­vers, two bronzes and one merit.

The renowned panel of judges com­prised for­mi­da­ble play­ers from the in­dus­try – Gigi Lee of Y&R, Huang Ean Hwa of MerdekaLHS, Mun Tuck Wai of Mun­moves­moun­tains, Liew Sanyen of IF In­ter­ac­tive, Tan Yew Leong and Chow Kok Keong of TBWA KL.

The One Academy stu­dents have be­come the big­gest Stu­dent Kan­cil Award win­ners for six con­sec­u­tive years with a whop­ping 42 cre­ative ad­ver­tis­ing awards in all.

Based on the mock client’s theme “En­ter­tain­ment wher­ever you go”, the brief was to “rev­o­lu­tionise the way we watch tele­vi­sion” when catch­ing our favourite TV se­ries, movies or mu­sic videos.

The gold award went to the sub­mis­sion ti­tled “Con­nectvty”. It was won by mem­bers Lai Siang Yeow, Thoo Sueen, Lau Chung Yuen and Tan Yik Hua.

The sil­ver award was won by group mem­bers Clara Chris­tine Wi­jaya, Yap Jia Wen, Vicky Lee and Kuan Sook Chi­ung for their work ti­tled “Fun is Wait­ing”.

Two bronze awards went to group mem­bers Tan May Wen, Shim Poh Ling and Stephanie Yeoh Pei Yee for the hip sub­mis­sion ti­tled “Astro OTG Cin­ema”, fol­lowed by group mem­bers Tan Piek Khie, Chow Wai Yee, Shieh Yen Pei and Kee Gaik Tong for their work ti­tled “Any­where, Even Un­der­world”.

A merit was awarded to Al­win Lim Win Hoong, Hyung Sun­woo and Ju­lia Han­nie Zulk­i­fli for their sub­mis­sion ti­tled “Trans­form­ing Any­where into Your Liv­ing Room”.

For decades, The One Academy stu­dents have been known as award win­ners and ex­ecu­tors. This is be­cause The One Academy trains its stu­dents in a prac­ti­cal ap­proach within an in­dus­try-driven syl­labus.

Gold win­ner and Con­nectvty group mem- ber Thoo says: “Dur­ing my jour­ney at The One Academy, I learned two most valu­able lessons – per­se­ver­ance, when the go­ing gets tough and not get­ting the re­sults you ex­pect; sec­ond, step­ping out of my com­fort zone in brac­ing my­self to try new things all the time.”

With this pos­i­tive and goal-ori­ented at­ti­tude in the stu­dents, it is no won­der why in­dus­try play­ers in the cre­ative field seek The One Academy stu­dents.

The cour­ses of­fered at The One Academy are Mul­ti­me­dia De­sign with New Me­dia Stud­ies, Dig­i­tal An­i­ma­tion with Game De­vel­op­ment, Illustration with En­ter­tain­ment Art, Ad­ver­tis­ing & Graphic De­sign, In­te­rior De­sign, Paris Fash­ion De­sign & Pat­tern Mak­ing and Fine Arts.
