In this event, we open recruitment of volunteers to all candidates who want to become adjudicators. Then, candidates will receive a presentation (Adjudicating Seminar and Debating Seminar) from Chief of Adjudicator and do a debate simulation (Debate Exhibiton) to give a clear description about the process of debate to measure their qualifications as judges.

This is the 11th debate competition held by HIMA ESP FEB Universitas Padjajaran and also our main event. This year we will invite 44 teams from all undergraduate students in Indonesia with “Education to Overcome Digital Inequality” as our Grand Theme in order to improve not only quantity but also the quality of internet usage starting from our own circles.

Gala Dinner is one of series of events organized to entertain the participants. In this event, we will also announce anyone who passes to the Quarter Final round. Gala dinner will be held at Puri Khatulistiwa Hotel and attended by all participants, adjudicators, and universities representatives.

Participant Target

44 teams from any university in Indonesia and 16  participants for adjudicator accreditation

All of the participants of PDC 2017 are fully satisfied with this event and also by presenting “Education to Overcome Digital Inequality” as our grand theme, the participants will participate in improving the quality of internet usage starting from their own circles.

Testimony

 

“Pengalaman pertama banget ikut PDC itu tahun 2014. Waktu itu saya kalah di semifinal. Tahun 2016 saya ikut lagi untuk kedua kalinya, dan jujur, saya lebih tegang soalnya lawan dan topic-topiknya lebih berat lagi dari sebelumnya. Saya dan Jeanne (team  mate saya) lolos ke babak gugur peringkat 7. Awalnya agak kecewa sih soalnya waktu 2014 lolosnya peringkat 4, jadi ngerasa agak menurun. Tapi ternyata selama babak gugur performance lancar terus sampai final. Dari perempat sampai final terus-terusan dapet posisi jadi Opening Government yang konon paling susah untuk menang. Tapi puji Tuhan bisa menang di final dan dapat juara 1.”

“I personally like how PDC is handled, menurutku dari  belasan kompetisi yang aku pernah ikuti, both national and international, hospitality LO dan panitianya baik-baik dan sabar-sabar banget. Competition wise juga so far kompetitif dan adjudicator core nya kasih motion yang oke banget, ini refer dari 2 PDC terakhir ya. Hadiahnya juga gede so PDC is definitely one of the competition which I enjoy debating in!”
