#7 ITB C from Opening Government yesterday successfully defended the motion "This House Would Financially Incentivise Hollywood Movie Makers to Make Films That Portray Islam Positively" and defeated #1 Binus International (Jaran Walia & Melisa Irene), #3 Universitas Indonesia B (Dennys Kapa & Terry Muthohhari) and #4 Universitas Atma Jaya Jakarta (Davin Sutanto & Kario Teguh).
ITB took home the best speaker award in AEO 2011 and 2012 but this time Jaran Walia from Binus International topped the individual tab, edging out ITB's Fauzan Reza Maulana who was among the four speakers on second spot. In the novice class, Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta B (Arif Burhanuddin & Egie Danarko) took the title, making the school a specialist in this category. UNY won novice team awards in the 2012 Indonesian Varsities English Debate and National Universities English Debating Championship. Alyssa Encarnacion, a Miriam College High School debater from the Philippines whose team went all the way to the main semifinal, was the best novice speaker.
