18th CVAP Batch Celebrates Successful Graduation Rites in a Virtual Ceremony: “A Look Into the Future of Voice Over Industry"


After months of intensive training and hard work, new Certified Voice Artist Program (CVAP) talented individuals are ready to take on the voice over industry with their newly acquired skills and expertise.

Together with their trainers and mentors, the new CVA graduates held a graduation ceremony last April 15 at 1 p.m., via Zoom meeting.

It took more than an hour for the whole program, with a message as an opening remark from the assistant head from batch 17, and mentor of batch 18 Brian Dela Cruz, and head script writing team batch 18 Giselle Bacalla, delivered a short speech, in how dedicated everyone is and are committed and sharing ideas to develop their final graduation requirement.

Also, the Vice President of Certified Voice Artist Philippine Inc. & Executive Director of CVAP, Ms. Nikie Esmero gave heartfelt congratulations to the students, and reminded them that their journey as voice artists has only just begun.

Esmero emphasized the importance of embracing one's purpose in life and the positive impact that can result from doing so.

“[Just] go ahead and continue to embrace purpose, [because] that purpose would make an impact, [and] can make a world a better place that how we into it,”

She encouraged the new graduates to continue sharing their voice, story, and advocacy, as they never know who may hear and resonate with their work.

“[So], just begin because you don’t know who will hear your voice, [who will hear] your story, and [who will] resonate to your journey. So begin sharing your voice, story and advocacy”.

After Esmero's inspirational speech, a dubbing activity that was part of their requirement that featured the voices of the recent grads from each breakout room group was aired, showing the elegance of their voice skills. Each group used various character-based vocal themes, with fictional characters.

This was the first time a dubbing activity solely focused on fictional characters was held.

The event also featured an icebreaker "Zoomustahan portion," with batch 18's head of the audio technical team, Karmina Dioniso, and another member of the technical, Marianne Angelika Garcia, discussed how they love and volunteer their time to successfully complete the batch recital, sharing their thoughts on how to better the recital's technical aspects.

The main highlight of the event was the Batch 18 recital, which lasted for more than an hour and centered on the theme "Magical Fantasies", showing the new grads' expansive imaginations, — as well as their aptitude for dubbing and technical audio.

After another Zoomustahan with CVAP Batch 18 Lian Aldea, it was immediately followed by the announcement of the selected Batch Head, along with the Assistant Head, and Secretary for Batch 18, Giselle Maris, also known as South Star Voice, who was chosen as the Batch Head, followed by Ria Karmina Dioniso, known as KarmaSpeaks, as Assistant Batch Head, and Marry Jo-anne Villaamor known as PowerVoice as Batch Secretary. These individuals will serve as the official representatives of CVAP Batch 18.

The nominees in a few chosen categories were conducted as the event's finale. Karmina Dionisio won the award for Most Promising Blogger, Onie Zamora for Most Promising Vlogger, Jayr Delmendo for Best in Monologue, Vannessa Ebron for Best in 5 Character Voices, Karl Gabriel for Best in Radio Commercial, Jayr Delmendo for Best in Motivational Speech, Jori Mae Samilalano for Most Promising Voice Brand, and BR 4 Majgin Voice for Best in Dubbing.

Followed by the award for Batch 18 with the highest compliance rate, 100% graduating with honors, and 95.55% compliance in all assignments.

Additionally, the Outstanding Secretariat-Mentor Award ceremony was conducted.

Fevidel Ariel took home the award for "Most Congenial Mentor," followed by "Most Nurturing Mentor" for Bry Dela Cruz, "Most Compassionate Mentor" for Ays Ays, and "Most Dependable Mentor" for JM Malan Cva. Alumni from various batches of CVAP hosted the most recent graduates, namely John Anthoni Cabuga, Maja Sanchez, and Arron Lucius Harbon.
