The Gawad Alternatibo is considered the longest-running independent film competition of its kind in the ASEAN/Asian region.  Since 1987, Gawad Alternatibo annually cites the best efforts of Pinoy filmmakers in four categories –Animation, Experimental, Documentary and Short Feature.  Winners each receive a cash prize, as well as certificate.  Aside from the main awards, special citations are given out to the best work from the regions, as well as works on/for/by children.  Many of today’s outstanding filmmakers and media practitioners are alumni of Gawad Alternatibo.
