Yap was overwhelmed at his winning as he feels the foundation he received at The One Academy has paid off. His advice to aspiring artists is in just three words, "Passion, Responsible and Humble."

Category D’s consolation prizes were won by another two alumni, Chong Fei Giap and Ivan Ng Pei Tao who said in satisfaction of his effort, "Always appreciate the knowledge your mentor imparts to you and always learn to see the bright side of things." As young designers, the foundation learned from the academy has always brought endless worthwhile achievements and experience to them.
