The Philippines’ GMA Network television has made history by being inducted into the first Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards (EMMA) Top 5 Wall of Distinction.
The Filipino media network was inducted in to the EMMA Wall together with the world’s biggest media companies – HBO, Comcast NBCUniversal, BET Networks, and Univision Communications.
GMA Pinoy TV was recognized by the US-based National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) for its “commitment to excellence in multicultural marketing for winning the most EMMAs year-after-year since 2013.”
NAMIC gives special attention to how the leadership cadres of the nation’s communications industry giants reflect the multi-ethnic richness of the populations they serve.
“We are proud to announce that GMA Pinoy TV, along with four other distinguished companies, has secured a place on the first-ever EMMA Wall of Distinction. We applaud you for your achievements,” said NAMIC Senior Manager for Membership and Publications Susan Waldman in the GMA report.
The Network’s global arm GMA International (GMAI), which reaches Filipinos abroad via GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International, earned its first EMMA in 2006 and has earned a total of 33 EMMAs to date. Since its launch in 2005, GMA Pinoy TV has been consistently recognized by NAMIC for its noteworthy marketing tactics using various media outlets that have resulted in better engagement with the channel’s carriers and subscribers.
In 2017 alone, GMAI received three 1st place EMMAs. Its “Becoming Pinoy: Sameera Aguilar” won in the Television category; while “Becoming Pinoy: Reggie Lee” topped the Diversity Awareness category. GMAI likewise reigned supreme in the Social Media category for the “Social Media Take-Over: Alden Richards” online event.
“We are grateful to be part of NAMIC’s history in their first-ever EMMA Wall of Distinction. As we mark this important milestone in our operations, we re-affirm our commitment to continuously provide quality offerings for our viewers abroad,” said GMA Network First Vice President and Head of International Operations Joseph T.
