Lumina Events Philippines Director Bernard Yabut Maybituin scored victory when he won best special events director award at the Aliw Awards 2020 held at the Fiesta Pavilion of the Manila Hotel recently.
Maybituin won the award when he directed “Mutia ti La Union 2020” which he mounted in collaboration with La Union Governor Francisco Emmanuel “Pacoy” R. Ortega III.
The “Mutia ti La Union 2020” event garnered six Aliw Awards nominations. The event has also won awards for “Best Festival Practices and Performance”, “Best Festival Catalyst/Organizer” for Governor Ortega and “Best Special Events Director” for Maybituin.
Mutia ti La Union 2020 and LUVWI Charity Ball 2020 were part of the 170th La Union Founding Anniversary that promoted the Agri-Tourism vision of the province around La Union and outside the province.
“I offer this award to our Lord God for giving us the gift of making people happy. Thank you ALIW Awards for recognizing me and the efforts of our company, Lumina Events. Your mouth speaks what your heart is full of” sabi nga po nila… as of the moment, what is inside me is an overflowing gratitude. My love and gratitude goes to these wonderful people, for entrusting me with Mutia ti La Union 2020 and LUVWI Charity ball where we were able to share our vision, passion and appreciation for culture, the arts, fashion and pageantry. All we wanted is a beautiful show, an elevated kind of presentation, highly entertaining, a show with a message, to present and showcase their platforms, campaigns and advocacies. With this kind of person that you will work with, sabi ko as a director, I should think differently. Basta gusto ko maganda, gusto ko iba, gusto ko yung may puso na show. I wanna give them and their people 100 percent satisfaction and one theatrical experience. I hope I was able to deliver that to you Gov. Pacoy Ortega III and Madam Vini Ortega and to the people of La Union,” the events director said.
Maybituin also recognized fashion designer Mama Rene Salud as a mentor to him and opened doors to the world of fashion, pageantry’ models, stylists, hair and makeup artists, photographers, videographers, modeling agencies. He also cited his Alma Mater – Angono Private High School – which fueled his passion for his craft.
He ended his heartfelt speech by sharing the recognition to the people in the creative industry who were worst affected by the pandemic. “We are gifted with resourcefulness and tenacity and we will rise again! Mabuhay ang Aliw Awards at Mabuhay ang Creative Industry ng Pilipinas!”
