ME in 15th CAMMA Awards 2011



15th Cebu Archdiocesan Mass Media Awards (Camma) happened last August 28, 2011, a Sunday at the SM City Cebu, Cinema 1! Surprisingly for me, mainstream media professionals and companies aren’t the only ones present and contenders for this year’s awards. The CAMMA 2011 theme is: “Truth, Proclamation and Authenticity of Life in the Digital Age,” in line with Pope Benedict and the Vatican's position last World Communication's Day.

Aside from presence from the New Media community, 15th Camma 2011 chairman Dr. Teoddie Dumam-ag said that this is the 1st event that is graced by Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma who will award deserving individuals or outfits. Another milestone and a first time in Camma, is that a local government unit is also a  nominee.

Camma aims to recognize “local media practitioners across all media platforms” who help promote Christian values. The awards will be given in six categories: website, advertising, radio, television, Cebuano newspaper and English newspaper.

I was really surprised and confused to be nominated, and then later on, won the award for Best in Personal Website, perhaps, the Church approves of my content and my website? xD

1st time to meet the new Archbishop Jose Palma ~at the same time, I look bloated/fat, sick-ish & clumsy**sigh
Anyway, congratulations to my co-nominees in the same category Edcel Suyo of Soloflighted.com and Jun Tariman (Local Broadcast Journalist-blogger)~These two are no ordinary bloggers as well! I was just really lucky I guess. Also, heads up and congratulations to another friend SunStar Soft pages writer Luis Quibranza III as a finalist for Best in Feature Writing!

About the CAMMA:
A brainchild of former Cebu Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, Camma was launched in 1992 by the archdiocese’s Commission on Social Communications and has been held every other year since 1998.
