Winner of Yahoo-MAS Cili Padi Awards 2013 Announced!

Remember Yahoo-MAS Cili Padi Awards 2013? The short film competition attracted a record of 265 entries including an entry by Muhammad Redha Bin Ampuani, a 21-year-old mechanical engineering student who ended up winning the grand prize.

Unfortunately, Muhammad Redha’s film titled, ‘Accepted’ was disqualified from the competition a few hours after the announcement. The organizer was alerted by netizens on how similar it is to another film uploaded on Vimeo two years ago titled 'One Step Forward'. (Whaaaat?!)


The coveted title was then handed to the deserving winner- 'Sly' which constituted the young duo of Soo Wei Wen and Nicholas Chin.

Congrats to all the winners!
