Fellow campus journalist:

Warm greetings from the Regional Office!

The College Editors Guild of the Philippines-Visayas will hold its ninth Visayas-Wide Convention, known as LUBAS on October 24-28, 2012 at Spring Park Mountain Resort, Toledo, Cebu.

LUBAS will provide lectures and workshops on basic, intermediate and advanced journalism skills. Likewise, trainings in different literary genres will be given by skilled media practitioners, literary writers, and political figures. And as part of the Guild’s dedication to educating student journalists regarding the plight of the country, various socio-political discussions will also be featured.

LUBAS is a Cebuano word for core. CEGP holds a firm belief that the core of the writer is the people. This year, CEGP will be awarding the fifth Gawad Rachelle Mae Palang to the campus publication that has published peasant issues in their releases. Awards will also be given for the Best Magazine, Tabloid, Broadsheet and Literary folio.

The LUBAS AWARDS was conceptualized by the College Editors Guild of the Philippines (CEGP) Visayas Formations to give honor to the best campus papers in the Visayas. This is part of the organization’s aim to uphold the highest standards and ethics of journalism as well as to remain socially aware and nationalistic campus journalists. The LUBAS AWARDS looks into the technical expertise of each publication and the content of each article published.

The categories are:
Best in Magazine
Best in Tabloid
Best in Broadsheet
Best in Literary Folio

The GAWAD Rachelle Mae Palang or GAWAD RMP shall be given to student publications that carry peasant issues in their releases. These publications not only print peasant issues, but they must also have conducted basic masses integrations and other activities with the peasants.

It has been an honor for the CEGP to have Rachelle as the Vice President for Visayas for three years (2004 to 2007). The guild gives high respect to her dedication to serve the peasantry and the service she has given the Guild that in honor for her; CEGP holds this award.
