SINGAPORE: Mediacorp won 47 awards at the World Media Festivals Television & Corporate Media Awards, including 19 golds. 

The company also took home two grand awards, one special award and 25 silver awards in Hamburg, Germany, it said in a media release on May 31. 

The accolades were in recognition of documentary and current affairs programmes by CNA, among others, as well as drama content.

One of the grand awards went to CNA Correspondent: Medicine and Misogyny for being the top entry in its category. The episode also took gold in the News Reports and Features: Documentary category.

Part of the long-running CNA Correspondent current affairs series, it focuses on the prevalence of misogyny in medicine, which often results in misdiagnoses or death for female patients. 

CNA’s Journey of a Vaccine also received a gold in the Documentaries: COVID-19 topics category. It explores what health workers in Malaysia and the Philippines have to go through to deliver vaccines to people living in mountainous regions, remote islands and heavily forested areas. 

Other notable winners were Last Madame: Sisters of the Night which bagged the other grand award and gold in the Entertainment: Continuing Series and Serial Programmes category. The drama series tells the story of Nozomi, a young Japanese girl in the 1920s who was forced into prostitution in Malaya while working as a spy.

Mediacorp also clinched three awards at the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting+ Awards, which recognises innovation and excellence in projects that technologically advance the field of broadcasting in areas like digitalisation and engineering. 

CNA’s Indonesia Election 2024 special took the top spot in the Live Event Streaming – Singapore category, while the new CNA FAST (Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television) channel topped the New TV Channel – Singapore category. 

Mediacorp’s Stranger in the Dark, one of the company’s first dramas to incorporate virtual production technology, won in the Virtual Production – Singapore category. 

“We are honoured that Mediacorp’s content continues to be recognised globally,” said CEO Tham Loke Kheng. 

“This year’s wins at the World Media Festivals Television & Corporate Media Awards are a resounding nod to the dedication and excellent work our production teams and partners tirelessly deliver day in, day out.”
