July 5, 2007. A friend of mine who was part of the production crew in charge of yesterday’s Gawad Plaridel asked me to take photographs of the event.
Gawad Plaridel is an award given annually by the UP College of Mass Communication to acclaimed and outstanding media practitioners who have contributed much to their field with the highest level of professional integrity in the interest of public service. This year’s awardee is from the field of TV broadcasting, acclaimed broadcast journalist, Ms. Cecilia “Cheche” Lazaro.
Ms. Lazaro’s lecture was enlightening and inspiring at the same time. Her efforts, together with her partners, of putting up Probe Productions, pioneered investigative broadcast journalism in Philippine TV which spawned the emergence of the the many investigative news programs and other public affairs programs we watch today.
