Dear Colleagues:

The College Editors Guild of the Philippines-La Union continues to remain true to its orientation of upholding the campus journalism excellence and defending the campus press freedom through AMMOYO 2012, its annual student press convention.

Ammoyo was launched in 2002 to unite secondary and tertiary student press members and young writers of the province. In 2008, it has extended its invitation to nearby provinces thus became the Regional Student Press Convention of the Guild.

Lectures on basic, intermediate and advance journalism will be given in the convention as well as contemporary socio-political discussions to train young writers to be of service to the students and the society through writing. In addition, the local formation has come up with a curriculum that focuses on the specific interest of the writers and artists.

The 6th Gawad Manuel Arguilla, the search for outstanding literary writers, will also commence in AMMOYO. Literary fellows are highly encourage to send in their entries and get a chance to be recognized as exceptional creative writers in the region.
