ABS-CBN continues to make its mark overseas as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award in the 2020 Asia Contents Awards (ACA) held recently in Busan, South Korea.
The ACA, which recognizes outstanding TV and OTT drama series throughout Asia, conferred the honor to the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment company for its significant contributions as a broadcaster in the Asian region.
In her acceptance speech, ABS-CBN chief operating officer of broadcast Cory Vidanes said the award came at an opportune time as ABS-CBN remains “undaunted in championing Filipino content globally” amidst the challenges it recently faced in the middle of a pandemic.
“In the last 65 years, we have created an environment of innovation, nurturing all our content creators, producers, artisans and talents to embrace a new era of global excellence. I humbly share this award with all the men and women of ABS-CBN and with every Filipino we continue to serve,” Vidanes said in a virtual ceremony streamed on the YouTube channel of the Busan International Film Festival last Sunday (October 25).
This year’s ACA comprised of 10 categories and 11 awards and drew a total of 75 entries from 17 different countries in Asia. Apart from ABS-CBN, Amuse Inc. of Japan also received a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Despite the non-renewal of its franchise to broadcast, ABS-CBN continues to serve Filipinos with entertainment and news content delivered on multiple media platforms such as cable, satellite, and digital, and remains committed to promote Filipino content to audiences all over the world.
