PANAF Partners with PurpleBug for Youth Creativity Festival and PANAnaw Awards 2023


In a recent development, the Philippine Association of National Advertisers Foundation (PANAF) has forged a contract with PURPLEBUG, a dynamic digital marketing agency. This strategic alliance marks a pivotal moment as PANAF gears up for two major initiatives: the Youth Creativity Festival (YCF) and the highly anticipated PANAnaw Awards Competition.

PANAF, represented by its distinguished leaders Blen Fernando (Chairperson), Gigi Tibi (PANAnaw Chair), and Alan Fontanilla (Vice Chair), came together with PurpleBug President Marlon Gonzales and COO Jonna Coja for the official contract signing.

The Youth Creativity Festival (YCF) is set to captivate the hearts and minds of marketing, communications, and advertising students and academicians alike. With the theme “Responsible Content Creation and Consumption,” this year’s YCF promises a dynamic lineup of renowned speakers who will ignite the imagination of the youth. These thought leaders are carefully selected to resonate with the vibrant pulse of our future creative custodians. Their insightful talks will inspire the next generation to channel their energy into purposeful artistic expressions that positively impact life, enterprise, brands, and our societal landscape.

On the other hand, PANAnaw Awards 2023 tackles the relevant and compelling case study theme, “An Urgent Call for Education Innovation.” Qualified schools will compete by presenting their selected communications plans, vying for not only substantial cash prizes but also the prestige and honor that accompany the victory.

Both of these youth oriented events will take place at The Elements at Centris, Quezon City, on October 20th and 21st, respectively. This event is co-presented by CICP ( Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines) with major sponsor BAYAD, venue partner Eton Properties and industry partner Ad Standards Council.

PANAF’s partnership with PURPLEBUG is poised to unlock a synergistic bond that will fuel creativity and innovation. Brace yourself for an extraordinary display of fresh talent and bold ideas with the students and the youth at the helm this October.
