ABS-CBN was recognized for producing quality, valueoriented shows for children and their families as “Wansapanataym” and “Team YeY” won at the Sinebata 2018 awards for value-laden and educational programs for children, officially making it to the list of entries set to represent the Philippines at the Southeast Asian Video Festival for Children (SEAVFC).
“Wansapanataym” won in the Professional Fiction category for shows for teens aged 13 to 17. The winning entry, which is the first episode of “Wansapanataym Presents Jasmin’s Flower Powers,” tackled honesty and integrity through relatable situations. The top-rating show for kids and teens airs on ABS-CBN every Sunday after “Goin’ Bulilit.”
Meanwhile, “Team YeY” won in the Non-Fiction category for 8-to-12-yearold children for its episode entitled “Aso’t Pusa,” which tackled friendship and embracing other cultures. The show, which provides kids with fun, educational and interactive activities like dance, storytelling, music and sports, airs every day at 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on YeY, the all-kids channel available on ABSCBN TVplus.
As the winners of Sinebata 2018, “Wansapanataym” and “Team YeY” will be among the Philippines’ official entries to the second SEAVFC to be held in Manila on November 22 to 24.
Sinebata 2018 is a festival and competition of creators of videos for and by children from the Philippines convened by Anak TV, an advocacy organization that promotes television literacy and child-sensitive, family-friendly television in the Philippines.
On the other hand, SEAVFC convenes 10 countries in Southeast Asia to promote, celebrate and honor the highest quality in youth and children’s television.
