The Anak TV Seal, a seal of good housekeeping on Philippine television, was awarded to 18 Kapamilya programs deemed as wholesome and generally child safe. The awardees of Anak TV Seal were chosen by jurors composed of parents, educators, business officials, government, media, NGOs, religious sector, and youth.
ABS-CBN shows which received the much-coveted seal are: “Be Careful With My Heart,” “Honesto,” “Matanglawin,” “Mutya Ng Masa,” “My Puhunan,” “Salamat Dok!,” “Wansapanataym,” and 11 other seals given to programs of ABS-CBN Regional.
Meanwhile, 20 Kapamilya talents were included as Makabata Stars, who were voted as the most admired and child-sensitive local TV personalities by over 12,000 adult professionals. Leading the winners with Hall of Fame awards were broadcast journalist Karen Davila and actress Angel Locsin.
Among the male Makabata Stars, who were considered as good role models for the youth, were news personalities Boy Abunda, Atom Araullo, Kim Atienza, Noli De Castro, Ted Failon, actors Enrique Gil, Coco Martin, Vhong Navarro, Daniel Padilla, and Richard Yap.
ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio topped the list of female Makabata Stars, alongside Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, Kathryn Bernardo, Kim Chiu, Anne Curtis, Alex Gonzaga, Toni Gonzaga, and Jodi Sta. Maria.
