The event was graced by Cebu's journalists, writers, bloggers, photographers and masscom students from different universities. There were discussions and sharing on tips on journalism and tips for surviving in the new digital media with the advance development of technology.

This year, the team tackled more on engaging readers through effective visual communication, mobile journalism in the modern world. Learning about writing strong leads for the start of the write-up (Ledes) as well as the Basic Coding literacy on HTML and CSS, using Markdown to simplify the coding process in updating and publishing online works.

a great resource for bloggers and news writers is this site Poynter.org as well as newsu.org

The group also had a giveaway to the first three early comers, some raffles giving away powerbanks c/o PLDT and a photo contest on instagram using the tips and tricks discussed on Photo Journalism.


Personally, I must say kudos to the event organizers it was a really productive seminar, All I noticed and felt during the whole session was a strong feeling of passion, professionalism and sense of helping one another all through-out. I was seated next to USJR masscom students there and felt there intense will to learn from the experts. Lunch was on the organizers, the attendees were surely glad and it was clearly seen on our faces (although i am more of like looking really serious staring at the Lechon lol!)
