ABS-CBN News Vies for Two Honors At the SOPA AWARDS 2021

ABS-CBN News’ reportage of Filipinos striving to cope with the impact of the Taal volcano eruption and the COVID-19 pandemic made it as finalists in the Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) Awards 2021.

The digital special “TAAL: Through Eruption and Pandemic,” a collection of stories of hope from communities in Batangas and Cavite, is a finalist under the Excellence in Journalistic Innovation (Regional) category.

Meanwhile, “Pangarap ni Chito: Kuwento ng jeepney driver na naninirahan sa nakaparadang jeep,” which is about a driver who lived inside his jeepney as he lost his livelihood due to the lockdown restrictions, is vying for the award for Excellence in Video Reporting (Regional).

Judged by a high caliber of international judges, the Hong Kong based SOPA Awards began in 1999 as a “tribute to editorial excellence in both traditional and new media.”

ABS-CBN News, which has won in SOPA in previous years, will be going up against hundreds of English and Chinese-language entries from international and regional media in Asia. The awarding this year will be done virtually on Thursday (June 24), 7 pm via SOPA’s YouTube page.
