PIA journalism training set

The Philippine Information Agency is inviting colleges and universities in the Negros Island Region to participate in the annual campus journalism seminar-workshop for college paper writers and advisers July 27-29 at the Sugarland Hotel in Bacolod City.

The training aims to provide participants with basic skills and perspectives, and develop in them the appreciation for development communication, PIA regional director Janet Mesa said in a press release.

“For this year, our modules will include journalistic writing news, features and opinion articles, photojournalism, copy reading and headlining, page design, online journalism, sports writing, and a lecture on climate change,” she said.

A new category for the College Press Conference will be the production of online newsletter.

To defray expenses, PIA will charge a registration fee of P1,600 each participant. The event will be a live-out seminar-workshop for three days, the press release said.

Requirements for participants include a digital camera and a laptop or netbook per publication, or if possible, for individual participants to have one. The camera is particularly required for photojournalists.

Participants can place their reservations until July 25 only, and those with no prior reservations will not be admitted. On July 27, registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the opening activities will be at 9 a.m., the press release said.

For further inquiries, those interested may contact PIA Negros Occidental at 435-3933, email piabacolod@yahoo.com, or text Anne Doza at 0921-5554335 or Karelyn Sumagaysay at 0947-1793063, the press release added.*
