With the sponsorship of SoundLogics and the support of AES Colombia another edition of the Public Display was held at the Centro Atico's auditorium, in which the works made by the audio engineering students of the Javeriana University are shown and exposed to the community. For this Public Display, a call takes place in which deadline is set for the students to submit their works to the AES Javeriana Committee in order to share their work and participate in the event. In this edition, the topic of the Public Display was the audiovisual works, made in the classes of Media Workshop 1, Media Workshop 2 and Post Production.

Maria Camila Mogollon and Luisa Pinzón, Chair and Vice-Chair of the committee made the presentation and introduction of the event. For this event, we had the opportunity of inviting José Valenzuela and Alejandro Jaramillo as jurors of the event. Their profiles can be found at the end of the document *.

In order to encourage and stimulate student participation and supporting their work, a contest in which a winner is chosen in each category is made in every Public Display. For this occasion three categories, one for each class/subject, were defined. Of the 23 works presented, the 3 winners were:

-Media Workshop 1 (seen in the 5th semester): Trailer mixed in stereo. The winner was Juan Felipe Herrera Bustos with "Toy Story 3".
-Media Workshop 2 (seen inte 6th semester): Animated short film mixed in 5.1. The winners were Esteban Sánchez, Santiago Gonzalez, and Andrei Sources with "Jack Jack".
-Post Production (seen in the 8th semester): Short story film mixed in 5.1. The winners were Juan Amaya and Diana girl with "Life, Death and Rebirth.

Despite some technical problems, the event was successful thanks to the joint efforts of AES Javeriana Committee and the logistical support group (which is made up of students of sound engineering). The importance of these events lies in the exposition of works in order to make them public and achieve academic feedback process that aims to build learning and knowledge.
