Filipino creative talents will continue to have an audience in the international scene even in times of crisis when they reap recognition from award giving bodies such as the Asian Academy Creative Awards (AAA), ABS-CBN head of Scripted and Narrative Programs Ruel Bayani said.

“Despite the challenges that the creative industry faces, content from our country will continue to be promoted and showcased in the global arena through the awards,” said Bayani, who is the Asian Academy Creative Awards ambassador for the Philippines.

Bayani also noted that the presence of local talent in the AAA will remind audiences around the world that “everything stays the same as the international community cheers us on.”

Bayani encouraged local creators to join the coming Asian Academy Creative Awards as it is extending the deadline for submission of entries to August 15 and will not apply late fees.

The AAA honors excellence in craft and technical disciplines in television, digital, streaming, and emerging technologies.

Moving the deadline is the award giving body’s response to the challenges that the creative industry continues to face amid the global pandemic.

Ricky Ow, the AAA’s Chairman of Awards for 2020 and WarnerMedia executive announced the extension at the AAA’s annual Producers Summit. “These are very difficult times that we live in, people are struggling to be safe, people are fighting for their livelihoods” he said.

“The Academy has decided to extend the award period by another two weeks given how difficult the current situation is,” he added.

Among the previous winners from the Philippines are ABS-CBN’s “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” (“MMK”) Asia’s longest-running drama anthology, which won “Best Single Drama/Telemovie” in 2018 and former ANC “Market Edge” anchor Cathy Yang, who won as Best News or Current Affairs Presenter/Anchor in 2019.
