Student Digital Stories from UC, Philippines

Second Digital Storytelling Contest at UC (2022)

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the world, our FRIENDS from the Philippines, Thailand, Bhutan, Malaysia and Cambodia were also affected. While the uncertainty around the globe affected all fields of life, FRIENDS’ digital stories transformed into a way of connecting internationally, at least virtually, while no other international travel was allowed.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, another Digital Storytelling contest was conducted in 2022. The winning video creators in the University of Cebu are Gwen Stefani, Tumala Badlon, Earl Marie Barcenas Regulacion, Christine Isabelle Batucan Rudolph, Jean Ruselle May Handayran Torreon, and Elearose Grace Tajo Yu. Their digital stories, as well as the many other submitted, can be viewed at the following link.
