All over the developed world, there are festivals and markets where original entertainment content are given access to a global audience.

 

The Philippine Creative Industry is already a strong presence in the outsourcing market – but the potential in original content is massive.

 

The Creative Content Creators’ Association of the Philippines (SIKAP’s) goal is to help local creators through a new and exciting opportunity in showcasing original Filipino creative content in animation, games, character, and prose.

AYO. Envisioned to be the Philippines’ First Original Content Market. 


AYO 2022 is a four-day (2-day hybrid plus 2 days online) conference aimed to kickstart the Philippines’ journey into becoming a key player in the global original creative content industry.

Targeted to be a full blown content market by 2024, AYO begins in CEBU by providing a venue for up and coming creators to learn and experience what it takes to break into the international market. Presented in partnership with the Department of Trade & Industry Region 7; the Department of Information, Communication, & Technology; and the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry under its Cebu Business Months effort, SIKAP aims to make AYO the festival par excellence in the Philippines, even the region, to the world.
