Recognizing the exceptional talents of Pinoy artists, GMA-7's SOP Concert TV has launched its first music video event competition on television—the 2007 SOP Music Video Awards, Showdown of Outstanding Young Pinoys.
SOP's main objective in launching this competition was to discover young, aspiring music video directors from the different universities and colleges all over the country.
The said event, which was launched last September 9, will be telecast live on November 18.
Sa Linggo, November 18, paparangalan na ang pinakamahuhusay na amateur directors mula sa iba't ibang unibersidad at kolehiyo. Nilahukan din ito ng mga batikang film/video directors na sina Direk Topel Lee, Lyle Sacris, Hector Macaso, Jaime Jamora, Robert Quebral, Wincu Ong, and Quark Henares, na nagsilbing "consultants" ng mga aspiring directors na napili. Hindi lang mga professional directors ang nagparticipate dito kundi ang mga maniningning na stars ng SOP at GMA Records na sina Jolina Magdangal, Yasmien Kurdi, Aicelle Santos, Brenan Espartinez, Jonalyn Viray, Gerald Santos, at Dennis Trillo.
