Past Entries & Winners 2005
Philippine broadcaster ABS - CBN Channel 2 was the winner of the ABU CASBAA UNICEF Child Rights Award 2005 for the programme entitled “Juvenile Injustice”. The Award was presented to Karen Davila, the producer of entry and representative of ABS-CBN Channel 2, during a gala presentation at the CASBAA 2005 Ball in Hong Kong.
The entry was an in-depth hour-long documentary that shed light on the harsh reality facing young juveniles left languishing in over crowded prisons and detained with adults while awaiting their sentences. By documenting the story of four young detainees and also exploring efforts underway in the Philippines to reform the juvenile justice system, the exposé demonstrated the urgent need to do more to speed up this process.
