CEGP to hold 75th National Student Press Convention

The College Editors Guild of the Philippines (CEGP), the oldest, broadest and only-existing alliance of tertiary student publications in the Asia-Pacific region, will hold its 75th National Student Press Convention (NSPC) on May 14-18, 2015 at Benguet State University, La Trinidad, Benguet with the theme “Panagtitignay: Fortifying Unities for Greater Victories against Corruption and Social Injustice.”

The NSPC will provide lectures and workshops on journalism skills and advocacy work. Likewise, trainings on different literary genres will be given. And as part of the Guild’s 83 years of dedication in educating student journalists regarding the plight of the country, socio-political discussions will also be featured.


Also, the following awards will be given to outstanding publications:

16th Gawad Ernesto Rodriguez Jr.

Named after CEGP President Emeritus Ernesto Rodriguez Jr., Gawad ERJ is the search for outstanding student publications in the country. The contest has two categories: major (tabloid, broadsheet, magazine,) and minor (website, alternative form, literary folio). In the major category, a publication may join only one form. In the minor category, a publication may join all the forms.

11th Gawad Beng Hernandez

In honor of the dedication of martyred CEGP Vice President for Mindanao Benjaline “Beng” Hernandez in protecting and promoting human rights, Gawad Beng is the award given to the publication with an exemplary program on human rights. Beng, who also worked as a human rights volunteer, was murdered by CAFGU while conducting a fact-finding mission at Arakan Valley, Cotabato on April 5, 2002. In this award, a particular program on human rights accompanied by photos, narrative report or video is to be judged (you can use any of these materials).

35th Gawad Marcelo H. del Pilar

Gawad MHDP is the highest citation given by the Guild to its outstanding alumni.
