November 23 was a historic night for Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) students as its professional organization, Communitas, held the first-ever Pecha Kucha Night.

Pecha Kucha, or 20×20, is a hands-free style of presenting that emphasizes good timing and complete knowledge of the presentation. It consists of presenting 20 slides, with each one timed at 20 seconds.

The event itself was an unprecedented success, filling the Dizon Auditorium to capacity. It was an impressive show of support as blocks boisterously cheered on their respective representatives in the competition.

Inspired by Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series, the theme of the program was “IMC Survival.” The representatives, also known as Tributes, were chosen (“reaped”) by their respective blocks. These included Minette del Rosario, Kelly Lati, Daryll Patco, Jigo Vidañes, Joey Mundo, Gabe Lesaca, and lone freshman contender Anton Campos.

It was also a night of sidesplitting presentations and stellar numbers by I-SA Dance Crew and IMC’s resident boy band #NoDirection.The judges’ panel, composed of veteran presenters Kaye Matriano and Nicole Miller, and Junior Marketing Communications team moderator Luis Arcangel, ultimately crowned Daryll Patco the champion of the Pecha Kucha Night.

“Phenomenal performance by Daryll Patco to win it,” tweeted Arcangel. “Flipped the switch and blew it out of the park.”

The champion scored a double victory as he also garnered the most votes for the Audience Choice award.
