The Pusan International Film Festival's Pusan Promotion Plan (PPP) – an Asian feature project financing platform – announced the winners of various awards handed-out to six of the 30 projects pitched during the event. PPP ran Oct 11 – 14 during the festival and its attendant Asian Film Market.

The top winner was Decadent Sisters, a new project by Japanese director-producer AOYAMA Shinji (Eureka, Sad Vacation). It won the Pusan Award of US $20,000 presented by Busan Metropolitan City.

A Korean project was also a big winner with director Han Jae-rim ("The Rules of Dating", "The Show Must Go on") collecting the Kodak Award of $17,000 – a prize committed to a Korean PPP project.

The CJ Entertainment award of $10,000 went to Indian director Pan Nalin for his project Slightly Sane. The Lotte Award which selects a Korean project at PPP, chose "Villain and Widow" by Son Jae-gon for a prize of $8,000.

The Wooridul Award of $8,000 went to New Policemen Stories by YANG Jin, a Hong Kong – China co-production. Indonesian director Edwin also picked up $2,500 for his new project Postcards From the Zoo, a prize to support travel expenses handed out by the Gφteborg Film Festival Fund.
