JOURNALISM SEMINAR WORKSHOP
Northwestern Visayan Colleges – The Forum Publication in cooperation with the Youth Advocates, conducts 2014 Campus Journalism Seminar Workshop held at NVC CSQ Gymnasium last August 21, 2014, Thursday with the theme “To Write Is Already To Choose.”
That was a one day activity where more than 40 participants composed of third year AB Mass Communication and AB English Students participated. After the opening program, Dr. Ambrosio R. Villorente, Technical Adviser of the Forum, in his short message congratulated the participants for joining the seminar. He encouraged them to learn more while they are young and be prepared to assume leadership in the future. He urged them to study and improve their journalistic skills.
After Dr. Villorente, the topic on News Writing was discussed by Mr. Jun Ariolo N. Aguirre. He discussed the basic information on News Writing. He then continued to talk on Photo Journalism. According to Aguirre, it is not the picture alone, but the message. It is important what is being portrayed. Aguirre let the students select a topic on current news in school and within the country. He also allowed the participants to go out to take photos.
Feature Writing was discussed by Ms. Rebecca T. Barrios, former school publication writer of the Philippine Normal University (PNU). She brought and distributed a copy of her work that served as material for her talk. Another graduate from PNU lectured on Editorial Writing. His discussion was accompanied with illustrations and samples.
