Drive, the official entry of the AB Communication Seniors on the recently-concluded NLEX-SCTEX Infomercial Making Competition bagged the 1st place among the 6 entries coming from various schools in the region and metro.


The 3 minute infomercial which tackles about the five (5) commonly violated rules in driving. In each rule, a mini scenario shows what can be the possible consequence if neglected.

BIYAHE (meaning ‘travel’ or ‘journey’) is an Infomercial competition organized by the Tollways Management Corporation (TMC) operator of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). As the title implies the theme of the competition will be about ‘having a trip, a journey…particularly a safe journey’.


The competition seeks to promote the importance of safety specifically in the expressways. Thus the theme of the participating films will be about safety in driving or in traveling.


The board of jury consist of Charo Logarta (Bureau of Customs Information and Public Affairs Director and former ABS-CBN Business Reporter), Donnie Sacueza (Film Director, Writer and Professor), Lhar Santiago Host of Unang Hirit and GMA7 Showbiz Correspondent and Marlene Ochoa (MNTC Vice President for Corporate Communications)


The awarding was held last November 21, 2014 at Marquee Mall Cinema 1 in Angeles City. The students bagged a trophy and a cash prize of P 12, 000.00.


Last year, the 4th year AB Comm students won the grand prize for the NLEX-SCTEX Short Film Category.
