ABS-CBN’s fantasy-drama anthology “Wansapanataym” recently bagged the Children’s Jury Prize in the prestigious 2012 Prix Jeunesse International Festival in Germany after its ‘Chalk Boy’ episode, topbilled by Kapamilya child wonder Bugoy Cariño, ruled in the ‘7-11 Fiction’ category, beating 19 other entries from various countries across the globe including Germany, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Netherlands, China, Columbia, United Kingdom, Korea, Chile, Lebanon and Kyrgyzstan.
The award-winning ‘Chalk Boy’ episode was about a little boy who was taught by a kid made out of chalk to value and respect his grandfather and his elders. Together with Bugoy in the episode were Dante Rivero, Jacob Dionisio, Rochelle Barrameda, and Arnold Reyes. It was written by Cris Lim and directed by Manny Palo.
Prix Jeunesse International is a biannual competition that recognizes the quality of innovative children and youth programs worldwide.
“Wansapanataym” is a part of ABS-CBN’s “Bida Best Kid” campaign launched recently that aims to empower children by encouraging them to become who they want to be and the best that they can be. It doesn’t only entertain and educate its young viewers with its values-oriented, child-friendly programs, but supports their dreams and aspirations as well.
