The VoiceMaster Bagged Two Awards at the Philippine Social Media Awards Night

The Philippine Social Media Awards was held on December 15, 2016, at the One Shangri-la Place in Mandaluyong City. The awards night was organized by the Philippine Social Media Examiner in partnership with Center for Sagip-Hirap Charity Foundation Inc. to recognize individuals and organizations that used the power of social media to create a positive impact to the society. Over a dozen awardees graced the event with their presence, to receive their Philippine Social Media Star Achiever and Philippine Social Media Star Brand Awards for their respective fields.


Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales bagged not just one, but TWO awards during this event. The VoiceMaster was awarded the Philippine Social Media Star Achiever for Arts and Entrepreneurship, in recognition for his accomplishments and contributions to the voice acting industry. His company, Creativoices Productions, was also awarded with the Philippine Social Media Star Brand for Most Outstanding Center for Voice Acting and Dubbing.


The VoiceMaster is considered an institution in the voice acting industry. Being the most respected and recognized voice artist in the country, he has been true to his vision to make the Philippines the center of voiceover excellence in Asia for 20 years and still counting. He revolutionized the industry by creating the first and only voice acting school on the Philippines, the Philippine Center for Voice Acting. The school did not only raise the bar on the quality of talents that do voiceover projects, it also opened the doors of the industry to those who have the passion and commitment to practice the craft. Since 2005, Pocholo’s school has produced thousands of graduates, with hundreds of them making their name in voice acting, voiceover, hosting, broadcasting and even public speaking.

Pocholo has also brought pride to the Philippines in the international voice acting scene, by becoming the only Filipino/Asian panelist in the 2012 VoiceOver International Creative Experience (VOICE) convention, which was then held in Anaheim, California. His company has also taken on one of its biggest international clients, SEGA Games, in 2008, and did voiceovers for their video games such as Golden Gun, Operation Ghost, Harley Davidson King of the Road, and Transformers: Human Alliance.


The Philippine Social Media Star Achiever award was also given to multi-awarded legends such as Comedy Queen Ai Ai delas Alas and world-class ballerina Shirley Halili-Cruz during the evening.

Truly, a recognition fit for the “man behind a thousand voices.”
