GMA News TV's flagship documentary program Reel Time made another historic win for the Philippines as it earned its first Gold Nymph Award at the Monte-Carlo Film Festival for the documentary "Isinulat sa Tubig (Forgotten Children of the Waves)."

Reel Time is the first Philippine program to have ever entered the roster of AMADE Prize recipients and the lone Asian country this year to be awarded at the highly-recognized award-giving institution in Europe.

The AMADE (Association Mondiale des Amis de L'enfance or World Association of Children’s Friends) prize is awarded to a television program—selected from the diverse entries from across the globe—that explores a human issue, contemporary or otherwise.

The award was conferred by Michel Merkt, the president of the AMADE jury, during the ceremony held in Monaco last June 21.
