UP Medicine Class of 2014 sweeps Mediscene 2010 awards

When it rains, it pours.

My batch won all the awards, and everyone is beaming with pride and fulfillment at tonight's Mediscene. Mediscene is the yearly scriptwriting and acting competition organized by the Medicine Student Council (MSC). This year's theme is Greener Pastures which celebrates the Doctors To The Barrio program of the College.

Cons Yu Chua won as Best Actor in a Lead Role for his heartfelt portrayal of Dr. dela Paz, the doctor who chose to serve the barrio. Everyone in the play was voted Best Actor in a Supporting Role, the first in history that this has happened. Congratulations are in order for Janna Olivera who spearheaded the Design/Props Committee, and the Technical Team for the orderly manipulation and set-up of the lights and music. Congratulations, too, to Ryan Magtibay for winning Best Director, an award he truly deserved.

We also won the Best Script award. My contribution was rather minimal here, but I had the chance to work with a wonderful team—Boss Therese Almeda, Poring Porlas, Lee-ann Caro, and Carla Bozon—all of whom were bursting with ideas, full of insight and humor.

I'll be posting snapshots of the play as soon as they become available. For now: Labing-apat, walang katapat!
