TV5 Bags Excellence Awards at the 13th Philippine Quill Awards

   TV5 bested thousands of entries from the nation’s biggest corporations and took home Awards of Excellence at the 13th Philippine Quill Awards, the country’s most prestigious awards in business communication.

The network’s Radyo5 Taxi Squad: Todo Radyo Serbisyo and Rescue5 Activity Book for Visayas bagged Excellence awards in the Communication Management division and Communication Skills division, respectively. Both campaigns are under News5, highlighting the network’s public service excellence and commitment to cause journalism.

Present to receive the awards were (L-R) Rescue5’s Chester Batongbakal, News5 anchor Paolo Bediones, TV5 Public Service Head Sherryl Yao, and TV5 legal analyst and Radyo5 anchor Atty. Mel Sta. Maria, at the awarding ceremonies held on March 9 at Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila.

Aside from winning the Excellence Awards, both Radyo5 and Rescue5 further made it to the five finalists that competed for the Top Award in the Communication Management and Communication Skills divisions, respectively.

Radyo5 Taxi Squad: Todo Radyo Serbisyo empowers cab drivers by forming a sustainable community of taxi drivers who serve as citizen journalists and role-model to others. Rescue5, on the other hand, pioneered a fun and innovative way of teaching disaster preparedness to kids in calamity-stricken Visayas through activity books in their mother tongues such as Waray and Sinugbuanong Binisaya.

These award-winning campaigns strengthen News5’s own brand of journalism, “Higit sa Balita, Aksyon,” which does not stop in just reporting news but goes the extra mile by taking action for positive change and inspiring the general public to do the same.

The Philippine Quill Awards is organized by the Philippine chapter of International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), a global network of around 15,500 business communicators in 80 countries.
