The School Digital Media Awards (SDMA) 2017 is an annual media competition organised by the Ministry of Education's Educational Technology Division and the School of Film and Media Studies of Ngee Ann Polytechnic. The competition provides a platform for primary and secondary students to express their creativity and talent through video or photography.
52 awards were given out, and Pathlight was among the top four schools to clinch Gold in the Secondary School Video Category.
Pathlight’s winning entry, "Rivus", aims to raise awareness of the dangers of internet gaming. The team put their heart and soul into the whole production which lasted four months, from scriptwriting and storyboarding to filming and post-production. Guidance from educators enabled the students to stay focused on the project and ensured quality in their final work.
