Comment from the Judge: TERRY ITO (Director, TV producer, TV
personality, critic, author and actor)
“Just watching the commercial made me happy, which I think is the most important thing. You watch the video, and the product is presented. This made me want to purchase and keep the product in my house. The casting of the characters was also great. It was a wonderful piece.”
ISLAM LUTHFI SYAIFUL, Upon Receiving the Award
“I really appreciate that this work piece, which was created by the school teachers and everyone who appeared in the cast, has received such a great prize. Thank you very much to everyone!”
