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.

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.
