“I told myself to relax kasi mas lalo akong walang masusulat kapag nagpadala ako sa kaba tsaka I know my next year pa ako, another chance kumbaga,” Carreon said.
As the first day rolled on, the division qualifiers in the eight individual categories such as news, editorial, feature, science and health, sports, editorial cartooning, photojournalism and copyreading and headline writing, already showcased their journalistic skills.
Day two is allotted for the group categories such as radio scriptwriting and broadcasting, TV broadcasting and collaborative desktop publishing.
Based on the matrix, in the individual category, the top five will be announced as winners but only the top three will advance to the RSSPC. The fourth and fifth placers will serve as alternates when any of the top three winners couldn’t join the RSSPC.
In the group contest, only the first placer will represent the division in the RSSPC next month.
