SGV Cebu tabulates the 5th Globe Media Excellence Awards

SGV Cebu was the official tabulator of the Globe Media Excellence Awards 2016 (GMEA) held by Globe Telecom, Inc. at the Radisson Blu Hotel on 22 September 2016. Now on its fifth year, GMEA recognizes excellence in journalism exemplified by print and online media as well as bloggers and social media influencers from Cebu, Bacolod and Iloilo. This year’s GMEA was anchored on Globe Telecom’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to help create a Wonderful Philippines. The winning entries embodied relevant content and focused on areas that include care for the environment and for people, positive societal impact, and the Philippines as a digital nation.

The awards were also in line with the Press Freedom Week in which media practitioners gathered to reaffirm media responsibility and promote press freedom. The week-long celebration is held annually in the week that includes 21 September, the anniversary of the declaration of martial law.

Led by Assurance Partner Gen Arevalo, SGV Cebu’s active involvement in the awards is a manifestation of the Firm’s continuing commitment and recognition of the importance of responsible journalism and the significant role that media practitioners play as vanguards of social awareness and global impact. Completing the team were Associate Director Malou Laurito, Senior Associate Ian Jayme and Associates Faye Advento, Aubrey Adlawan and Earl Minerva.
