A partnership between the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) with government of South Korea is instituted for training of Filipino animators and game developers to boost the Philippines’ digital outsourcing sectors.

Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) sponsored this training program under the International Cooperation Program of the Government of Korea.

“The country’s animation and gaming sectors carry a large potential for the Philippine information technology and business process management industry. By training our future leaders, they can strive to lead the next generation in building up the Philippines as the next prime destination for animation and gaming-related services,”

— Grace Dimaranan, president of the Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI).


“We hope to have our game developers and animators penetrate the global market and take a bigger slice of the global market. Immersing them in a successful and technologically-adept country such as Korea have surely given them the skills and training that they needed,”

— Alvin Juban, president of the Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP).

Filipino animators and game developers, who were chosen from a group of recommended and certified assessors and trainers of TESDA, trained in Gyeonggi-do, Paju, South Korea for almost two months.

The participants took specialist courses in design and construction, and skills on software program education.

They also completed workshops on industry-specific skills such as graphics modeling, texturing and lighting, game art as well as programs such as 3D Max, Unity 3D, Java, and other e-learning packages.

Through public-private partnership initiatives to drive the growth of the Philippine animation and gaming sectors, ACPI and GDAP work closely with IBPAP to lead their respective sectors in reaching the global market.
The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) is the enabling association for the information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) and global in-house center (GIC) industry in the Philippines. IBPAP serves as the one-stop information and advocacy gateway for the industry, with approximately 300 industry and support-industry members, including five trade associations.

The Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI) is a non-stock and non-profit organization whose aim is to promote the animation industry globally with the intention of creating an identity for the Philippines to be considered amongst the preferred countries for animation projects.

Established in 2007, the Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP) is a leading trade association in the Philippines that represents and promotes the country’s game development industry.
