ABS-CBN bagged five recognitions in the prestigious New York Festivals including two world medals for its special documentary “Agosto Beinte-Uno” and investigative program “Failon Ngayon.”

The documentary “Agosto Beinte-Uno: Ang Pagpatay kay Ninoy Aquino” that revisited the assassination of former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. won a silver world medal in the Graphic Design: Promotion/Open & ID category. It also received a finalist certificate in the Biography/Profiles category.

Ted Failon’s weekly investigative program “Failon Ngayon,” on the other hand, won the bronze world medal in the Current Affairs category for its episode ‘Tagas ng Minahan’ that probed the environmental hazards caused by mining spills in relation to a sediment flow incident that contaminated Balog river, all the way to San Roque Dam.

Meanwhile, finalist certificates were also awarded to ABS-CBN’s educational program “Matanglawin” in the Educational/Instructional category for its episode ‘Elephants’ and ABS-CBN Creative Communications Management for its plug “Sprout” in the Green Promotion category.
