– 3rd EDITION –
Dreams, enthusiasm and SILENCE
“These are difficult times and I think it is fair to dedicate this award to young people and all those who are still struggling to achieve their dreams.” these were the words of the creators of Road to the silence, the winning spot in the Third Edition of the International Competition Kerygma Awards, directed by the college girl Clara Blazquez Vizuete.
With much excitement and some nerves, winners wanted to thank the organizers of the contest for encouraging students to continue their profession in a time when young people only find closed doors.
Because that’s what everyone who was at the gala held at the Florida Park in Madrid could see. A room full of young people, enthusiastic about their work, excited about their chosen profession because they had the chance to show what they could do.
All this in a ceremony full of humor and fun because of the great presenters: Javi Nieves and Mar Amate. They were responsible for presenting the awards and livening up the evening event, as they have being doing the same for almost seven years in the morning program of Cadena 100.
Elena Furiase, talent award
But they were not the only stars of the show. The actress Elena Furiase received the 1st K award to Young Talent from the hands of a great actor and her friend, Ramón Langa. Furiase received the award bowing and while joking at all times. “And now that I’m here, I’ll sing a song,” he told a joke in his farewell amid laughter and applause from the audience after a speech in which he encouraged the contestants to fight every day for their dreams.
Second and third award
The other two stars of the evening were the creators of the shorts Babilonia and Conexion, winners of the second and third prize of Kerygma Awards The two works are not only noted for their quality but also for the message sent. A picture is worth a thousand words and these shorts films, whose main theme was the silence, amply demonstrated it.
Another great example of how much can be transmitted through the silence was the short film which received a Special Jury Mention: “El silencio también come cucharas”. A tribute to nature and an incentive for everyone to worry more about her in just 1 minute and 33 seconds.
A night full of surprises
Something no one expected is that Vicente Valles appeared on the screen, host of Antena 3, from the set of TV news, giving the new of the contest Kerygma Awards and pretending a live connection with a journalist who was in the gala. The spectators greeted with laughter and applause a fun, original and also professional staging.
Another surprise was the interview to the actors and actress of the Spanish show “con el culo al aire” who advised the nominees how to collect a prize. “Do not be humble, just enough”, “make the most of the situation and ask for a job” were some of the tips that these actors gave the contestant at a gala characterized by humor, enthusiasm and commitment to the job and dreams of youth. Of those young people who still have a lot to say, even through silence.
