Now on its 5th year, the GMEA continues to recognize excellence in journalism exemplified by members of the print, broadcast, online, and social media in Visayas and Mindanao. Globe first launched GMEA in Cebu and Davao in 2012 as part of its advocacy in supporting press freedom by honoring media practitioners who demonstrate excellence and professionalism in their field of work.
All submitted entries touched on any or a combination of the four (4) Sustainability Focus Areas: care for the environment, innate care for our people, positive societal impact, and digital nation.
This year’s GMEA is anchored on the company’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as part of its advocacy to help create a Wonderful Philippines. “The critical role of media organizations and online communities in forming and shaping public opinion makes it imperative for technology organizations like Globe to encourage excellence in this field as we all aspire to effect societal change,” Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto said.
The participants were allowed to submit up to six entries which were published or aired between May 2015 to April 2016. The Awards Night for the Globe Media Excellence Awards Visayas will be held on September 22, 2016 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu City as part of the Cebu Press Freedom Week festivities.
PRworks Inc. has been helping GMEA since it began in 2011.
