ABS-CBN’s ‘Storyline’ Wins Big at the 2011 New York Festivals

"Storyline" bags two medals at the New York Festivals.

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs led the winners from the Philippines at the prestigious New York Festivals (NYF) International TV and Film Awards 2011 by taking home two medals for the documentary program “Storyline” and eight finalist certificates.

“Storyline,” which airs on ABS-CBN every Wednesday and on ANC every Thursday, bagged a Silver World Medal in the Biography/Profiles category and a Bronze World Medal in the Community Portraits category. “Storyline” was also awarded a finalist certificate in the Social Issues/Current Events category.

Rounding up the winners from the Kapamilya network’s news and current affairs division are “Bloodbath in Manila,” TV Patrol’s coverage of the Manila bus siege, and Ces Oreña Drilon’s the docudrama “I Survived,” which both received finalist certificates.

Storyline, now on its second year, is the first current affairs show in the country without a host, relying on narrative and cinema to tell its stories. The thematic series was created by filmmaker Paolo Villaluna and writer Patricia Evangelista.

Evangelista, who produces Storyline along with other ANC human rights documentaries, writes the show’s narrative through the voices of its storytellers. The same independent production team that built the show in May of 2008 remains largely intact, with this year’s medals adding to the bronze for the 2010 Best Music Video “Ako ang Simula.”

Meanwhile, the New York Festivals also awarded top caliber drama “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” starring Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa, and phenomenal fashion-serye “Magkaribal” topbilled by Gretchen Barretto and Bea Alonzo with finalist certificates in the newly introduced Telenovela category.

The promotional spot titled “Altar,” created by ABS-CBN Creative Communications Management for the fire prevention month, was also named finalist for the Copywriting: Promotion Spot category.

With a total of eight finalists, two of which winning medals, ABS-CBN Corporation is the country’s biggest winner at this year’s New York Festivals. The New York Festivals® World’s Best Television & Films™ recognize the “World’s Best Work™” in news, sports, documentary, information and entertainment program as well as in music videos, infomercials, promotion spots, openings and IDs.

40 Comments on ABS-CBN’s ‘Storyline’ Wins Big at the 2011 New York Festivals

  1. one more thing… di nyo naitanung sa GMA kung ilan ang pinasa nilang maging entry and to think 4 lang ang nakapasa.. let me guess, cguro 100 of entries tapos apat lang ang nominated…

  2. panu di manalo ang GMA ehhh join ng join ng mga contest… insisting their crap craft… unlike abs-cbn pinupuna na hindi nag papa-pansin… sorry to tell you abs-cbn lang ang may quality ang work… GMA works is more on effects not on the story… very unreliable source of data. 🙁

  3. GMA NO. 1 // April 15, 2011 at 3:57 pm //

    napaka EFFORTLESS TALAGA ang PAGIGING NO. 1 NG GMA…. D GAYA SA IBA, TRYING HARD…WEW… CONGRATS GMA..YOUR SIMPLY THE BEST.

    The report is about the year 2011

    If your pointing out the SUM of awards, then might as well post all the finalist list for both networks to defend your claims as well as the year.

    Again, its year 2011.

    yes, kapag international awards, panalong panalo ang GMA vs abs… iba kasi pag international totoo at d inadadaya di katuLAD DITO, EHEM…….PANALONG PANALO ANG gma SA INTERNATIONAL AWARDS VS ABS !!!

    panalo na sa awards international, panalo pa sa rating at panalo pa sa kita 2010!!

    bakit panalo sa kita? sa dami ba naman ng corp ng abs ang liit ng lamang na kita sa gma, tapos ang daming maghahati hati sa abs samantalang sa gma kaunti lang -ibig sabihin mas kumita pa rin ang GMA.kaya nga may sapat na pera ang GMA para sa operations ng kumapanya samantalang ang abs kailangang mangutang para ipambayad sa dating utang dahil walang sapat na pera.itanong nyo na lang sa PSE kung ano ang kaso ng abs sa utang na yan……….

    congrats GMA– truly no. 1!!!!!
