GMA NEWS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS OUTSHINES ABS-CBN NEWS IN THE 2012 NEW YORK FESTIVALS!

GMA News and Public Affairs makes the country proud anew after winning three Silver World Medals and six Finalist Certificates at the highly prestigious 2012 New York Festivals Television and Film Awards held on April 17 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.


I-Witness’ Lapnos (Burn) episode won the Silver World Medal for the Social Issues and Current Events category, while GMA News TV’s Front Row brought home two Silver World Medals – one for the Social Issues category for its Yaman sa Basura (Child Urban Miners) episode and another one for the Biography/Profiles category for the documentary program’s Bente Dos (Twenty-Two) episode.

I-Witness’ Lapnos gives viewers a glimpse inside the burn unit of the Mindanao Burn Center in Davao City . Here, Peabody Award winner Jay Taruc learns about the victims’ individual – at times, harrowing – stories.“We are honoured to receive this silver medal from the NYF. Lapnos was a heartbreaking yet powerful story that moved all of us who produced it. But what makes this story truly remarkable, apart from the recognition it recently received, is its power to raise awareness on this small, forgotten hospital in Mindanao . Even now, we continue to receive pledges for the hospital and its patients, and for this we are truly grateful. We dedicate this award to the burn victims who shared their story with us and hope that more can be done to alleviate their suffering,” says Angeli Atienza, Program Manager for I-Witness’Lapnos episode. “This documentary was passionately executed by the men and women of I-Witness. We dedicate this award to our dear 12 year old Christy, who succumbed to complications from her burn wounds. God bless you and God bless Mindanao ,” adds Executive Producer Lea Llamoso.

Front Row’s Yaman Sa Basura tells the story of twin boys risking life and limb working in an urban mine in order to help their family. Bente Dos (Twenty-Two), on the other hand, narrates the life of a couple living in Manila ’s slums, together with their children—all 22 of them.

“GMA News TV is just a year old channel. With Front Row’s two medals, we take so much pride and honor to receive more medals than any other Philippine network from the New York Festivals this year. Our local audience has embraced the non-traditional, no-host, no-voiceover documentary format and we are glad that jurors from international award-giving bodies have appreciated it as well,” says Johnson Tam, Program Manager for Front Row.

Meanwhile, three GMA entries brought home Finalist Certificates including the I-Witness episode on compressor mining presented by Peabody award-winning journalist Kara David dubbed Gintong Putik; the GMA special that delved deep into the current situation of the country’s education system in Report Card;and Born To Be Wild’s The Born Expeditions Finale: The Monster of Mae Klong and The Great White Sharkwhere, in the presence of a Philippine wildlife team, a world breakthrough in sting ray research was documented on video.

Leading Philippine news channel GMA News TV – only on its first year of airing but is already making its presence felt even in the international arena – also brought home three more Finalist Certificates: GMA News TV’s historical docudrama tracing the evolution of Dr. Jose Rizal’s writings, Pluma: Si Rizal, Ang Dakilang Manunulat (Rizal, The Great Writer); and two Reel Time episodes—Lusong and Tira. Lusong (Live to Dive) tells the story of a father and his son’s race to earn enough money through diving while Tira(Infected) narrates the alarming cases of young teens suffering from sexually transmitted diseases.

The New York Festival International Television and Film Awards is one of the world’s most prestigious award-giving bodies dedicated to both the television and film industries. It encourages next generation story-tellers to break new grounds by honouring the winners within each competition each year.

Kapamilya ako pero mas gusto ko ang mga docu na pinoproduce ng GMA. So para sa akin deserving naman sila. Kaya pansin nyo marami na silang naipanalo sa mga docu nila. Pamana rin ni Che Che Lazaro ng Probe yung galing ng mga reporters ng GMA na nahawakan niya. Pagdating sa drama and entertainment shows, mejo ibang usapan din yun kaya nga Kapamilya ako for the most part.

while its true na better ang docu ng gma, di rin nman pahuhuli ang abs..both tv stations deserve to win.

pero pagdating sa entertainment, ibang usapan na, abscbn, da best.

ok nmn tlga ang mga documentaries ng gma..ok sla dun..pero mas bida pa rin ang abscbn lalo na pagdating sa entertainment..

kumbaga forte ng gma ang docu, entertainment naman ang abs cbn which is mas malawak at mas mahirap gawin

noon aminado ako nangunguna ang abs sa entertainment, claudine and juday days. but sad to say, pati sa entertainment sakop narin ng gma. walang hanggan lang kaya nagrerate sa'nyo, from afternoon to evening GMA teleseryes ang mas pinapanood ng mas nakararaming tao sa pilipinas. sa mindanao lang kayo malakas. sa visayas kasi GMA is fast catching up. di ba yan ang mapait na katotohanan. wag ngang magbulag-bulagan!!! ano supalpal kayo?! lol

^ anu daw..sori teh..dami ko fb friends na taga-visayas pero di pa rin nila like ang GMA (kung meron man ung low IQ individuals lang talga) ,your station is not even reaching our taste for world-class and quality teleseryes, pakisabi sa kanila hwag magtipid sa production bwahahaha kaya lalong yumayaman ang ABS kasi focus talaga sila sa rich class bwahahaha

Tama! Excuse me lang diyan sa isang Shungang Kapuso ha, ano raw? Morning till evening pinapanood ang GMA? Where? AHAHAHAHA. Kasi ang pagkakaalam ko, nagteTRENDING sa twitter ang Shows ng ABS-CBN na di pa pinipilit ang mga Fans na ipatrend ito di gaya ng mga Artista ng GMA na sinasabihan pa ang Fans para lang magtrend ng SAPILITAN ;))) kaloka! At even Stef Prescott na isang GMA Artist alam na pang-INTERNATIONAL Level ang TFC ng ABS-CBN at lahat ng Artista ng Dos ay may Pangalan at Sikat ;) Bakit nasabi yan ni Stef? Kasi gusto nya rin sanang lumipat kaso nga lang eh Walang offer sa kanya at sabi nya baka Wala ng Space para sa kanya sa ABS-CBN ;))) So ano pa mga Kapuso? Gusto nyo pang MASUPALPAL ng Severe? Sabihin nyo lang ;))) Pinapanood ang Shows ng GMA dahil sa data ng AGB na sa MegaManila lang? AHAHAHAHA. Gosh! Sabi pa nga ni Gabby Lopez na ang Network na may MATAAS na Ad rates ay ang matatawag na Number One at sa pagkakaalam ng Maraming Manonood eh mas MALAKI ang Ad Rate ng ABS-CBN kesa sa GMA ;))) Kaya nga Halos lahat ng Makikita mong Commercials sa TV eh Mukha ng mga Kapamilya ARTISTS ;) Iilan lang ang sa Syete ;) Diba? Kayo mga Kapuso ang WAG magBULAG-BULAGAN ;))) Kahit nga sa SUMMER STATION ID eh NGANGA kayong mga Kapuso eh paano naman, Nakakahiya ang Summer Station ID ng GMA while yung sa ABS-CBN eh Bongga, Pinaghandaan at pinagkaGASTUSAN ;) Akala ko ba walang utang ang GMA? Bakit kung MAKATIPID eh WAGAS? kaloka! Kaya nga sa Youtube eh yung Views ng Summer Station ID ng ABS-CBN eh nasa 295,000+ na habang may 2000+ likes at 50 Dislikes while yung sa GMA eh nasa 15000+ views at MAS MARAMI pa ang DISLIKES kesa sa Likes ;))) AHAHAHAHA! So Double Number ONE talaga kayo mga Kapuso? ang tanong, WHERE? BOOM!!! BASAG!!! AHAHAHAHHA.

im a self-confessed kapamilya..

dats true marami talagang mga docu ang gma compared sa dos, kahit ako nanonood din lalo na sa news tv nila kasi maganda naman talga.

so maybe the real score is:
gma - news and public service
abs-cbn -entertainment


chos!
