The College Editors Guild of the Philippines will hold its 36th Biennial Student Press Congress and 72nd National Student Press Convention (NSPC). The NSPC will be on May 18-22 at Baguio City.
The Guild is the oldest and largest intercollegiate alliance of student publications in the country. This year, CEGP celebrates its 80th year of existence committed to the advancement of campus press freedom.
The NSPC will provide lectures and workshops on basic, intermediate and advanced journalism skills. Likewise, trainings in different literary genres will be given. And as part of the Guild’s dedication to educating student journalists regarding the plight of the country, various socio-political discussions will also be featured.
Also, the following awards will be given to outstanding publications:

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.
