SPAM’s new pres­i­dent and Holy Cross Col­lege of Pam­panga pro­fes­sor Richard Bri­ones said the con­fab aims to rec­og­nize the ex­cel­lent ser­vices of cam­pus jour­nal­ists and ad­vis­ers; hone their skills in jour­nal­ism, broad­cast­ing and doc­u­men­tary mak­ing; train school pa­per ad­vis­ers on the prin­ci­ples of cam­pus pa­per man­age­ment; and pro­vide them with the re­cent trends in cam­pus jour­nal­ism.

“This year’s theme, ‘Ad­vo­cat­ing Ethical Cam­pus Jour­nal­ism amidst So­cial Chal­lenges’, is timely be­cause of the ex­is­tence of mul­ti­ple me­dia chan­nels which trig­gered com­plex­ity and am­bi­gu­ity of in­for­ma­tion,” Bri­ones shared.

The ple­nary ses­sions will in­clude lec­tures on the re­spon­si­ble and ethical cam­pus jour­nal­ism and the Cam­pus Jour­nal­ism Act of 1991; fake news and how to spot them; cam­pus pa­per man­age­ment and cre­ation of pro­pos­als, and sports vide3o show­ing for cre­ative mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing.

Aside from the ple­nary, the con­fer­ence will also fea­ture pa­per pre­sen­ta­tions and si­mul­ta­ne­ous sem­i­nar-work­shops and con­tests.

“This year, there are also a lot of in­di­vid­ual con­tests for the stu­dent­del­e­gates. These in­clude back­pack jour­nal­ism, lead writ­ing, news edit­ing, editorial writ­ing, pho­to­jour­nal­ism (us­ing DSLR and smart­phone), and jour­nal­ism quiz bee. Ad­vis­ers will also com­pete un­der the news writ­ing and copy­read­ing and head­line writ­ing cat­e­gories,” the SPAM Pres­i­dent shared.

Mean­while, com­pe­ti­tions un­der the group cat­e­gory will in­clude cre­ative mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing, ra­dio broad­cast­ing and doc­u­men­tary maki ng.

Pre-judged pub­li­ca­tion con­tests will also be at stake, which in­clude Cam­pus Mag­a­zine of the Year, Cam­pus News­pa­per of the Year, Cam­pus News­let­ter of the Year, Cam­pus Broad­sheet of the Year, and Cam­pus Lit­er­ary Fo­lio of the Year.
