ADB Awards Transport Competition Prizes for India, Philippine Videomakers

on September 20, 2016.


The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has awarded prizes in its youth transport video competition to one young filmmaker from India and another from the Philippines.

Sarath Kuttikkatuparambil Thilakan won the ADB Judges’ Choice Award for a video titled “Mumbai Promise” that examined transport issues such as congestion, noise, and air pollution in the Indian city of Mumbai. He noted that these problems would only worsen with rising migration to cities unless planners take a sustainable approach including public transport.

Meanwhile, a Philippine filmmaker James Tad Patrick Bardon, currently based in Japan, won the People’s Choice Award based on social media “likes” for his piece entitled “The Case of Kitazaki”. His film showcased the difficulties of connectivity in a remote, rural town and called for public transport as an alternative to more cars on the road. Read more.
