Creative and innovative ways of recycling was the main theme for GMA Network’s recently concluded Art Gap 2015, an annual art competition for Kapuso employees.
Art Gap 2015 is spearheaded by GMA Coporate Affairs Division in partnership with Aquabest.
In celebration of GMA’s 65th anniversary, the competition highlighted “Kapuso ng Kalikasan,” the Network’s advocacy on the environment as participants were tasked with utilizing used plastic bottles as their main material in creating functional works of art.
This year’s competition saw a group from the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Department winning first place for their ingenious entry, “Greenhouse. Think Green. Love Green. Live Green.” Using plastic bottles, they created a safe environment for plants to grow, protecting them from harsh winds and rain, while allowing sunlight to pass through.
Second place went to “The Red Nook,” a multi-purpose accent chair made from large water containers and smaller water bottles by a group from Script2010, a GMA subsidiary. Meanwhile, the group from the Corporate Communications Department won third place for their timepiece titled, “Turning A New Leaf,” which was formed with leaves cut out from the plastic bottles.
The winners were awarded by GMA Chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon, President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. and EVP and CFO Felipe S. Yalong at the GMA General Assembly on Oct. 22. The winning groups received cash prizes and certificates.
