GMA Network’s socio-civic arm, GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF), bagged three Silver Anvil Awards in the 53rd Anvil Awards held last March 23.
All three entries from GMAKF received recognition in their respective categories. GMAKF’s annual report entitled, ‘20 Years of Serbisyong Totoo: The GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc. 2016 Annual Report’ won under the Public Relations Tools – Publications category for its “comprehensive narrative of all the charitable projects implemented throughout the year.”
On the other hand, GMAKF’s segment on primetime newscast 24 Oras dubbed, ‘Kapuso Para sa Kawal Project,’ Layong Matulungan ang mga Sundalong Lumalaban sa Marawi was commended under the Public Relations Tools: Multimedia/Digital Online Video/Online News as a “way to appreciate and uphold the commendable effort to honor a hero [in] Marawi and move for positive change.”
Also winning a Silver Anvil in the Public Relations Tools: Multimedia/Digital Online Video/Online News category is GMA Kapuso Foundation’s poignant Rebuild Marawi MTV which calls on the public to help rebuild and restore war-torn Marawi City.
The awards were received by GMAKF Executive Vice President and COO Rikki Escudero-Catibog together with Nico Joven Waje, news producer for the Kapuso Para sa Kawal Project and Rebuild Marawi MTV.
Escudero-Catibog expressed gratitude for winning three Anvils. “With this recognition, we are encouraged to do more relevant projects as well as more thought-provoking and encouraging tools so more people are moved to donate and give their support,” Escudero-Catibog said.
Known as the “Oscars of PR,” the Anvil Awards is organized by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines and honors the most outstanding public relations programs, tools, and practitioners in the country.
