Intel awards winners of their Digital Showdown challenge


So about four months ago, Intel challenged Filipino home-movie enthusiasts to create a 30-second, 50-second and 70-second video illustrating how the PC made an impact in their lives. After receiving a torrent of entries through Intel’s Facebook page, local Intel reps have finally chosen the the top three winners of the challenge, who took home brand spanking new notebooks powered by Intel’s latest Core i series of processors.

The winners were judged on creative merit, technical skill and artistic impact, as well as on general appeal and online votes received. Renowned film directors RA Rivera and Quark Henares gave film-making expert advice on Facebook during the competition period to encourage the entrants.

After all the votes were tallied, Jay Jamoralin (Chromatose) emerged as the grand prize winner, and managed to bag himself a Core i7 equipped notebook courtesy of Intel. Second place went to Patrick Uy (Bagong Buhay), who received a Core i5 powered notebook while third place went to Gary Sta. Cruz (Marvin Digital World), who got a Core i3 powered notebook.
