Adding to its recent string of victories in international competitions, GMA Network gained eight recognitions in the 2014 US International Film and Video Festival (USIFVF) based in Los Angeles, California.

GMA’s latest win consists of two Gold Camera and five Silver Screen awards for its News and Public Affairs shows, and a Certificate of Creative Excellence for one of its Entertainment programs.

Taking home golds (first place) are GMA News TV shows in the Documentary production category, namely Wagas: Mga Kuwento ng Totoong Pag-Ibig, for Docudrama programs; and Brigada, for Social Issues programs.

Wagas has also been included in the shortlist of documentaries nominated for the Best of Festival (Grand Prix) Award, reserved only for the most outstanding Gold Camera recipients. Winners will be announced on June 16.

The show’s entry was its “Cerebral Palsy” episode, which featured the inspiring love story of an ailing Ron Saniposo (played by Sid Lucero) and his wife Grace (portrayed by GMA Artist Center talent Gwen Zamora).

Brigada’s “Gintong Krudo” episode, meanwhile, exposed the hazards faced by impoverished children at the Navotas Fish Port, who swim in filthy waters to collect spilled crude oil.

The same episode also won the Silver World Medal in the 2014 New York Festival, where GMA bagged one gold, two more silvers, and three bronze world medals.

Earning one of five Silver Screen awards (second place) for the network was GMA News TV’s primetime newscast, State of the Nation with Jessica Soho, in the TV News category for Continuing News Stories.

The newscast was cited for its coverage of Super Typhoon Yolanda (international code name: Haiyan) last November. It was also part of GMA News and Public Affairs’ gold medal triumph at the George Foster Peabody Awards, considered the equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize for electronic media.

This is the third consecutive year that State of the Nation was recognized by the USIFVF. Last year, it won the Silver Screen Award for “The Wrath of the Monsoon,” its coverage of the disastrous habagat rains that swamped Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

In 2012, State of the Nation received a Certificate for Creative Excellence (third place) for its episode on the aftermath of Typhoon Sendong (international code name: Washi).

For its part, Reporter’s Notebook earned a Silver Screen Award in the Documentary Programs: Current Affairs category for its “Bakas ng Trahedya” episode. Anchored by Maki Pulido and Jiggy Manicad, the episode shed light on the plight of Yolanda survivors and the government’s response in the wake of the tragedy.

Reality documentary program Reel Time won two silvers for “Silang Wala sa Mapa” in the Documentary Programs: Health, Medical category, and “Dungkoy” in the Documentary Programs: Biography category.

“Silang Wala sa Mapa” showed how the B’laan indigenous people of Mindanao survived for generations without modern medicine. It was also a Silver World Medal recipient in the 2014 New York Festival.

“Dungkoy,” on the other hand, told the story of a nine-year-old boy who takes care of his paralyzed grandmother. Both characters share similar fates of being forsaken by their own families.

GMA-7’s Front Row received a Silver Screen Award in the Documentary Programs: Social Issues category. Its winning episode, “Ulilang Lubos,” featured the plight of abandoned children who are forced to fend for themselves.

GMA Pinoy TV welcomes the new year with a fresh lineup of programs that are sure to excite Filipino audiences overseas.

A story of love and obsession will be brought to international television screens this January 21 with the premiere of The Borrowed Wife starring Camille Prats, TJ Trinidad, Rafael Rosell and Pauleen Luna. Focusing on the question, “Is there reason enough for a spouse to become someone else’s lover?” the series takes viewers into the lives of four characters bound together by a secret that will set them onto an interconnected path towards love and redemption.

On January 28, three more shows will be launched on GMA’s flagship international channel. The first of these will see Primetime Queen Marian Rivera paired for the very first time with GMA Artist Center’s prime leading man Alden Richards in the new and absorbing drama series, Carmela. The story will see its title character forced to make heart-wrenching decisions as she struggles with being judged because of her beauty and with a love that can never be.

GMA Pinoy TV subscribers will also see a compelling new drama that will challenge viewers to discover the nuances of personal relationships and encourage them to examine how deeply they know their loved ones. Jennylyn Mercado, Yasmien Kurdi, Mark Herras, and Mark Anthony Fernandez star in this new series entitled Rhodora X, which will also premiere on January 28.

Rounding out this year’s January lineup is Paraiso Ko’y Ikaw, a beautiful tale of true love that defies all odds. The series, which features sought-after Kapuso teen stars Kristoffer Martin and Kim Rodriguez and introducing Phytos Ramirez, will begin airing on January 28.

This February 18, Max Collins and Luis Alandy will engage viewers in Innamorata, an intriguing story of the dangers of losing one’s self in wanting someone or something so much.

Furthermore, GMA Pinoy TV continues to bring even more fun, laughter and entertainment to Pinoys abroad with the latest episodes of the comedy game show Celebrity Bluff hosted by the award-winning comedienne/actress Eugene Domingo with Jose Manalo, GMA’s original creation Picture! Picture! with Ryan Agoncillo as game master, the musical variety show Sunday All Stars, the longest-running showbiz-oriented talk show Startalk, and the first ever reality-sitcom Pepito Manaloto, an original concept from award-winning comedian/actor Michael V.

Ryan AgoncilloSundays with the whole family will be more fun and exciting as GMA Network presents its newest game show – PICTURE! PICTURE! The program premieres December 8 on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV. 

 

This one-hour game show will be hosted by returning Kapuso, ace TV host and celebrity dad Ryan Agoncillo. Ryan has certainly proved his calibre in hosting various programs over the years; and as he tries his hand at being the game master of Picture! Picture, he will surely amuse, charm and conquer the hearts of Filipino families locally and abroad.

 

Picture! Picture! will show viewers how photos can be emotionally engaging, eliciting wide range of emotions. The experience is made more fun as four contestants play as a team and take their chance to win as much as half a million pesos by correctly answering 10 picture-aided-questions with only 30 seconds to come up with an answer.

 

After a set of three questions, the team must eliminate one member. The first person to buzz in and give the correct answer will have the power to kick out a player. In answering a kick out question, the player’s first answer will be considered his/her last answer.

 

Making Picture! Picture! extra thrilling is the “Back Ups” option which will help the team survive the game. First is Twin Picks where the team is allowed to choose two answers from the three choices. They can use this only once anytime during the game except in the last question. The Save Pic, on the other hand, is the team’s extra life. If they give the wrong answer, they will be automatically saved and will be allowed to continue playing.

 

The game is over when the remaining players either make a mistake or reach the final question. For the jackpot question, the player must give his/her answers to the five pictures shown within the 60 seconds time limit. If the game ends and there’s still time, a new team will play.

 

Picture! Picture!’s interactive and unique elements that are culturally relevant across all ages and gender make it more fun, relatable and educational for viewers to watch.
