Leading broadcast company GMA Network won multiple honors at the 18th Philippine Quill Awards, considered as the country’s most prestigious awards program in the field of business communications.
During the virtual ceremonies held last March 25, GMA took home three Excellence Awards. The first one was for its Corporate Social Responsibility project ‘GMA Network Excellence Awards.’ Its regional arm, GMA Regional TV (RTV), gave the Kapuso Network two more honors for the ‘Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels’ and ‘Kapuso Campus Tour: The Regional Masterclass Series.’
Recognized under the Communications Management Division’s Corporate Social Responsibility Category, the ‘GMA Network Excellence Awards’ (GNEA) is an annual nationwide search that honors outstanding graduating Filipino students of communication and technology-based courses. For 18 years, GNEA has conferred awards to future media practitioners who demonstrate leadership, academic performance, and social responsibility.
Also winning under the same category is ‘Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels’ – the mobile version of GMA RTV’s “Kapuso Barangayan” which was originally a community activity held in key barangays across the regions.
Meanwhile, ‘Kapuso Campus Tour: The Regional Masterclass Series’, also organized by GMA RTV, won an Excellence Award in the Communication Training and Education Division. The series, which was launched in 2019, saw some of today’s most talented Kapuso personalities sharing their thoughts on various topics—from mobile journalism to choosing the country’s next leaders in this digital age.
Moreover, the country’s longest-running morning show Unang Hirit also won a Merit Award for its “Serbisyo at Puso (SAP)” and “Ligtas-Padyak Project” – special projects launched at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. Delivering journalism beyond lip service, Unang Hirit has a tradition of news and public service spanning 21 years and counting.
The 18th Philippine Quill Awards honored several entries from professional and student communicators which exemplified the global standards of excellent, effective, and purposeful business communication. It was organized by the International Association of Business Communicators Philippines (IABC Philippines), the first IABC chapter in Asia.
