The Anak TV Seal Awards is done annually to recognize selected personalities and programs that are child-sensitive and family-friendly.
As stated in their website, the iconic seal on Philippine television is bestowed by parents, teachers, non-government organizations (NGOs) and other sectors of society on television programs which in their “estimate, are wholesome and child-safe.”
“It is a seal not found anywhere else in the world, Anak TV being a movement that flourishes only in the Philippines,” as read on their website.
Anak TV is run by officers led by Elvira Yap Go, president; Leng Raymundo, vice-president; Ma. Teresa Pacis, secretary; Mag Cruz Hatol, Secretary General; Ed Roces, chairman with Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski as official spokesperson. The foundation is at the forefront of a media literacy campaign that diligently goes to the grassroots.
