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 Network is the Philippines’ Biggest Winner at the 2015 New York Festivals, bringing home 4 World Medals and 4 Finalist Certificates for its News and Public Affairs programs.

GMA’s late-night documentary program Front Row, led the winners as it bagged the Gold World Medal in the Best Public Affairs Program category for its feature on the neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The documentary took viewers beyond the viral Ice Bucket Challenge and showed the real story behind the disease in the eyes of ALS patients and their families.

GMA afternoon program Reporter’s Notebook won a Bronze World Medal in the Community Portraits category for its “Burak at Pangarap” episode. The story centered on twelve-year-old Junjun whose family was left homeless when a fire razed their home and more than a hundred other houses in Malabon City.

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.

Four more Finalists recognitions were awarded to GMA Network. These included Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Katipunan, Reel Time and “Walang Rape sa Bontok,” one of the winning entries in the first Cine Totoo Philippine Documentary Festival produced by GMA News TV.

The New York Festivals awarded its 2015 winners at a ceremony held at the National Association of Broadcasters’ Conference in Las Vegas last April 14. Now on its 57th year, the Festivals honored the world’s best TV programs and films from among entries submitted by over 50 countries.
