Silver Award  2015 Asia-Pacific Tambuli Awards

Silver Award 2015 Asia-Pacific Tambuli Awards

After bagging the World Bronze  Medal at the 2015 New York Festivals last April, GMA News TV’s “May Pag-asa” Station ID continues to bring home accolades from award-giving bodies. 

 

In May, the Station ID won Silver in the Advocacy Marketing Category  at the Philippine Association for National Advertisers PANAta Marketing Effectiveness Awards. The body honors the best communication tools in the country. 

 

In the recently concluded 2015 Asia-Pacific Tambuli Awards on June 9, GMA News TV’s “May Pag-asa” Station ID brought home another Silver in the Advocacy Category.  The Asia-Pacific Tambuli Awards recognizes brands from around the world which not only deliver results but promote social good, celebrate human truths, ignite purpose and effect real change. 

 

The Station ID presented a moving and heartwarming collection of stories of hope featuring the little known trials and tragedies that the channel’s personalities have overcome … such as venerable talk show host Winnie Monsod’s having recently had a stroke, Peabody award winning documentarist Jay Taruc taking care of his daughter with spinal muscular atrophy, investigative journalist Malou Mangahas having been imprisoned during Martial Law etc.  The campaign showed that the GMA News TV anchors, like their viewers, have gone through trying times yet have bounced back.

 

The inspiring campaign was the brainchild of Nena Dumol who was diagnosed with Lupus in 2011 but continues to work as a Senior Program Manager for GMA News TV.

GMA News TV’s Motorcycle Diaries took home a Bronze World Medal in the Human Concerns category for its “Karapatan ng Bata” episode. The episode showed how poverty denies countless Filipino children their basic rights.

GMA News TV’s “May Pag-asa” Station ID, a collection of stories of hope which revealed the little known tragedies and challenges behind the success of the channel’s on-camera personalities, also won a Bronze World Medal in the Station/Image Promotion category.

Eight entries from GMA Network were named as finalists – the most number of finalists among all local TV networks – in the highly esteemed 2015 New York Festivals World’s Best TV and Films competition.

Top-rating weekend news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho was shortlisted in the Human Interest category for its episode “From Saudi with Love.” A heartwarming story about gratitude that crosses borders, defies language barriers, religion and ethnicity, the episode featured Saudi journalist Rawan Radwan’s search for her former Pinay nanny.

Chosen as one of the finalists in the Community Portraits category was afternoon program Reporter’s Notebook for its “Burak at Pangarap” episode. It centered on the story of twelve-year-old Junjun, one of the 78,000 children in Metro Manila facing severe deprivation of shelter, after his family was left homeless when a fire razed their home and more than a hundred other houses in Malabon City.

Late-night documentary program Front Row, in turn, made it as a finalist in the Best Public Affairs Program category for its feature on the neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Travel documentary program Motorcycle Diaries’ “Karapatan ng Bata” episode, also on GMA News TV, was named as a finalist in the Human Concerns category.

GMA News TV’s “MAY PAG-ASA” campaign is a collection of stories of hope aimed to show the power of the human heart to see light in the midst of darkness.

 

It does this by revealing the little known tragedies and challenges behind the success of GMA News TV’s personalities.  In this station and social media campaign, they share their personal struggles (#maypinagdadaanan) and how these became their source of hope (#maypagasa).  They also share life stories of a few of their news and documentary subjects so that others can draw inspiration from them.

 

For seven years, Vicky Morales prayed to have a child. She tried everything -from medical intervention to dancing in Obando. Despite the long wait, she never lost hope. Vicky is now blessed with not just one, but three lovely children.

 

Jay Taruc was devastated when he learned that his only daughter Sophie has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Sophie cannot walk and may be taken from their family at any time. Jay now spends every possible moment with his daughter.

 

Cesar Apolinario used to sell cigarettes on the street while Susan Enriquez had to work in a carinderia.  Their earnings helped put them through school.  Now the two are award-winning journalists.

 

Solenn Heussaff was bullied at a young age for being overweight.  She taught herself to be strong and eat healthy and transformed into an icon of fashion and beauty.

 

Mel Tiangco suffered from a heart attack while Winnie Monsod experienced a stroke while on the air.  Surviving these life threatening conditions pushed them to pursue their advocacies with even more passion.

 

Mike Enriquez has been married 37 years to his wife Baby. Early in their marriage, the two realized a baby was not in their destiny. Instead of focusing on what they lacked, they decided to work on maintaining a blissful marriage.

 

Beyond the experiences of its hosts, the channel honors the unwavering spirit of the Filipino and their indomitable courage to stand up and move forward through this campaign.

 

GMA News TV believes that we are all have our own story of hope. And as we help one another rise up, we help our nation rewrite its future.

 

The heartwarming MAY PAG-ASA campaign airs worldwide via GMA News TV International.

 

“Ano ang Kwento ng Pag-asa Mo?” is the campaign’s theme song performed by Johnoy Danao and co-written by Johnoy with GMA News TV program manager Nena Celle Dumol and executive producer Joni Mosatalla.  The song was composed and arranged by Ronald Tomas.

 

The GMA News TV station ID was shot by director Adolf Alix Jr. and filmed using ARRI Amira cameras provided by CMB Film Services Inc., with the drone shots captured by anchor/reporter Raffy Tima.
