Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) has won the Jury’s Special Prize awarded by the Asian-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) at the 47th ABU General Assembly, which opened in Tokyo on October 19.

VOV took the prize for its documentary “Culture Guardians”, a 30-minute programme, which fascinated audiences with moving stories of people who have devoted their lives to preserving the beauty and values of traditional cultures.

This is the first time that VOV has won an ABU prize, although in 2009, an entry from VOV4 made it to the final round.

VOV sent two entries, including “Culture Guardians” by Tran Nhat Minh, Tran Hong Hanh and Hoang Phuong Trang from VOV2 channel.

The ABU’s Prizes are presented annually, to improve the quality of radio and television programmes and to strengthen cultural and educational understanding between member countries in the union and region.

According to the ABU, in 2010, 25 countries and territories sent in 199 entries, including 141 TV programmes and 58 for radio.

The ABU was founded in 1964 to develop the broadcasting sector in the Asia-Pacific region and increase cooperation through exchanges of information, programmes and technical and services consultancies. The ABU now has 197 members in 56 countries and territories.
