‘UNMASK THE TRICKERY:’ PUP Radio Conference returns face-to-face three years later
April 11, 2023
As it marks its tenth edition, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP)’s DZMC-Young Communicator’s Guild (YCG) is set to kick off the PUP Radio Conference on April 14, 2023, at Tanghalang PUP, three years after the pandemic halted its physical symposium.
Excitement is an understatement for Project Head Edward Jayson Comeo for leading this year’s theme: “MANIOBRA: Unveiling the Illusion Behind Public Deception,” which seeks to highlight the importance of educating the masses in the post-truth era when the value of truth in socio-political discourse has declined.
“I am confident that this year, we have a bigger purpose, now more important and relevant than ever, because of our mission and objective to take part in the challenge of combating information peddlers who engage in (the) deceptive practice,” the project head quoted.
Comeo added, “There’s so much to anticipate, but above all, I am hopeful that all of the sacrifices we made together with the event organizers will be worth it because there will be additional knowledge that we will gain thereafter.”
Meanwhile, Project Co-Head Gef Manabat wishes to offer the participants “a thought-provoking and timely symposium” that will inspire a much more enthusiastic, passionate, and patriotic generation of radio practitioners who “will be powered by their integrity to serve the public.”
Together with the conference is the PUP Radio Festival – dedicated to flaunting the students’ talents, skills, and originality in Radio News Production, Radio Podcasting, and Radio Jingle Making. Now in its third year, the online competition is open to high school and college students nationwide, with over 140 participants. The Best Output and Special Recognition prizes for the most spectacular entries will be presented on April 16, 2023. It will be live-streamed via PUP Radio Conference’s official page, alongside their media partners’ pages.
The DZMC—Young Communicators’ Guild is the official student radio and news organization of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines—College of Communication in Sta. Mesa, Manila.
