5 days to go and we’ll be seeing each other at the 5th Pinoy Media Congress, as for the update, here is post from PINOYWORLD.ORG, please check this out for those who’ll be participating the event 😀

The Philippine Association of Communication Educators Foundation (PACE) and ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation have joined forces again to bring the Pinoy Media Congress with the theme Politics, Media and Citizenship.  Mark the place and the dates: 4- 6 February 2010 at Bulwagang Balagtas, NALLRC Bldg., Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Sta. Mesa, Manila.

The theme is timely as we all gear up for the May 2010 elections.  The sessions will cover discussions on political advertising, politics and the new social media, public opinion, the code of ethics in news gathering, citizen journalism, political advocacy, presidential profile, corporate social responsibility,  ratings 101, TV entertainment and a yearly dialogue with ABS-CBN top management.

Other than top executives of ABS-CBN led by Chairman and CEO Gabby Lopez, President and COO Charo Santos – Concio, Head of News and Current Affairs and ANC Maria Ressa, print and broadcast journalists, TV and movie personalities,  PACE is also inviting experts in research, film, advertising and journalism from universities and media organizations to give high-powered lectures and discussions.  Program schedule will be out soon.

On February 6, 2010, special activities for students like ABS-CBN studio tour, La Mesa Ecopark tour and Star Cinema Film Screening at ABS-CBN’s Dolphy Theatre.

For teachers, you are invited to attend the PACE National Conference on the 3rd day of the Congress.  The CHED Circular for the AB Broadcasting, Journalism and Communication Curriculum (for implementation SY 2010 – 2011) will be presented in the morning and this will be followed by PACE business matters and fellowship in the afternoon.

Pre-register now to reserve slots for your school delegation.  As in the previous years, it will be on a first come, first served basis.  Congress fee is only Php500.00 inclusive of lunch and snacks for 2 days, PMC bag and ID.  For now, we have set a quota of 6 teachers and 20 students per delegation.  We may increase this depending on the turnout; we will keep you posted.  Schools represented by members of the PACE Board and PMC Organizing Committee have the option to send bigger delegations in consideration of their valuable assistance to this project.
