Supports new category to encourage use of digital technologies in addressing social challenges
As the purveyor of the Filipino digital lifestyle and thought leader in digital design, Globe Telecom is partnering with adobo Design Awards Asia in recognizing the best and the brightest talents in design for digital and interactive media.
Specifically, Globe is supporting the Mobile App Design for Social Good, which will recognize entries in the mobile application format that present creative solutions to social issues. In addition, Globe is also supporting sub-categories under Digital/Interactive category, which will recognize entries that are interactive interface, or motion designs used for digital problems.
“With a growing number of our population now going digital, we should be able to tap on fresh talent with this new category. We are happy to collaborate with adobo magazine and the D&AD in coming out with the Mobile App Design for Social Good category to bring out the innovative spirit among many Filipinos,” Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto said.
“By supporting this award, we continue our course of being the purveyor of the Filipino digital lifestyle,” Crisanto emphasized.
More entries from the Southeast Asia region are expected this year, which is expected to further enhance creative excellence in the Philippines and in the region. Deadline for submission of entries will be on February 27, 2016 while awards night will be held on April 8, 2016 and celebrated along with adobo magazine’s 10th anniversary.
This year’s adobo Design Awards Asia will also be undertaken in partnering with D&AD, a British educational charity that promotes excellence in design and advertising. Originally launched in 2007, the competition covers over 20 categories and is open to all creative enthusiasts, professionals, freelancers and students. The competition has since grown to include international entries, raising the bar even higher to parallel global standards of creative excellence. Students and freelancers will get a chance to showcase their fresh ideas and be critiqued by established names from both advertising and design.
“We would like to thank Globe Telecoms for presenting this year’s Mobile App Design for Social Good award. We at the adobo Design Awards Asia are very excited to have a company that is held in such high esteem as Globe to be part of this year’s awards. It is very heartening for us to see you support a mobile application that aims to present creative solutions to social issues or problems,” said Angel Guerrero, founder and editor-in-chief of adobo magazine.
