Our Diploma in Mass Media Management (DMMM) students stole the limelight at the Media Publishers Association Singapore (MPAS) Awards 2017 held on 26th September. They won the Student Project of the Year Gold Award for their digital publication “Catch”. The diploma also received a Special Citation Award for overall outstanding work in budding young talents for the future.
“Catch” is part of the Teaching Enterprise Project (TEP) facilitated by DMMM. TEP takes place in the third year of the diploma for an entire semester whereby students get to specialise in production, print and creative services management.

Two final-year DMMM students, Gladys Lim and Janna Khoo, travelled to the All-England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, England, to cover the grandest of all Grand Slam tournaments. Thanks to our partner Fox Sports Asia, the students spent over a week in London to be part of the network's production of Wimbledon. They were invited to the exclusive pre-Wimbledon WTA Party and worked in the Fox Sports Asia studio alongside hosts Jason de la Pena, reporters Nikki Muller and Michelle Holland. They also got to rub shoulders with Wimbledon champs past and present such as Marion Bartoli, Richard Krajicek, Daniela Hantuchova amongst others. Their work was aired to millions across Asia on Fox Sports.
As part of their industry project, DMMM students produced two music videos for songs from an album released to salute the contribution of national servicemen. The two songs, one in English and another in Tamil, are part of the album commemorating 50 years of National Service NS50. The first music video features Nathan Hartono and Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen in the studio singing an original composition by Glen Wee titled “We Are the People.” The second video entitled “Stand Tall” written by Shabir, featured SAF Music & Drama Company (MDC) Dancers at several locations on the Nanyang Polytechnic campus. Mr. Loh Aik Khoon, Head of MDC said, “It was a great pleasure working with the DMMM students. They are clearly well trained and disciplined and demonstrate a keen readiness to be media practitioners.”
Well done DMMM students!
