Thanks to your votes, inspirational documentary "Gwapa" won this weekend's Project of the Week.

Congratulations to director Meg Pinsonneault. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

Here's what the project's about:

Gwapa (Beautiful) is a real-life fairy tale that follows two unlucky Filipino families and their journey for a healthy future. Every year, 4,000-5,000 Filipino children are born with cleft deformities, which are among the most common and curable of birth defects. Sadly, most clefts go unrepaired. One surgery can change a child's life forever. Gwapa (Beautiful) is the first feature-length documentary dedicated to bringing awareness to the high number of children born with cleft deformities in the Philippines and the great need for free reconstructive surgeries. This stunningly remarkable film is a powerful tale of love, determination, and hope.

Four more Projects of the Day coming this week, with the next vote on Friday. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
