The online news portal of TV5
MANILA, Philippines - TV5's online news portal InterAksyon.com bagged the 2012 Best Design-Interactive award from Adobo Magazine for its Metro Manila Traffic Navigator (TNAV), a project with the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
InterAksyon.com editor-in-chief Roby Alampay, who is also senior manager for new media at TV5, and MMDA director for traffic Yves Gonzalez received the trophy during a ceremony held at the Ayala Museum, in Makati City, Friday night.
TNAV was introduced in June 2011 to service commuters and motorists in the easiest way possible by presenting the traffic situation in Metro Manila's major thoroughfares in a graphically logical and pleasing format.
TNAV was designed and programmed by the team of Stray Interactive, led by Ninoy Leyran.
"On this evening celebrating the best of Philippine design, all credit goes to Ninoy and his fantastic team at Stray Interactive," Alampay said. "Ever since the Traffic Navigator was launched last year, people have been thanking and congratulating us. For the record: It's MMDA workers who work hard to keep all that traffic data fresh and helpful 24/7. And as for the award-winning design, programming, and how it all came together - that's all Stray Interactive."
The Adobo Design Award is the sixth accolade for InterAksyon.com, which was added to TV5's platforms just a year ago.
Earlier, InterAksyon.com won the Anvil Award of Merit in the Internet Website category; Boomerang Awards also for the TNAV; the Quill Award for Excellence; the Media in Migration Journalism Award for its reportage on labor migration issues; and the Cyberpress Award for excellence in interactive journalism.
