GLOBE MEDIA EXCELLENCE AWARDS
GLOBE TELECOM broke from tyranny, twice in its 85- year
existence, and became a vanguard of freedom.
Globe Telecom’s origins can be traced back to 1928 after the
US Congress passed Act No. 3495, allowing the Robert Dollar
Company to franchise and operate a wireless long-distance
message service in the then-U.S. colony, the Philippines.
After being renamed as Globe Wireless Limited, it continued
its radio and telegraph service for over a decade until the
outbreak of World War II. Rampaging colonial ambitions by
the Japanese Empire saw an invasion of the country and an
interruption of the company’s services.
Twenty years after the war, in 1965, the company was
revived and renamed yet again into the Globe-Mackay
Cable and Radio Corporation (GMCRC). It was unfortunate
that another form of tyranny, this time from within, never
gave the company enough room to grow. The imposition of
Martial Law in 1972 ensured that GMCRC was among the
first organizations closed down by the regime. Its doors
remained shut for eight years until it was granted a tentative
new franchise in 1980.
A short time after that, in 1986, the EDSA People Power
took place. Since then, Globe has vowed to never again bow
down to authoritarian government and to keep a lighted
place at the forefront of all fights for freedom and for man’s
basic rights.
The Freedom of the Press, we all know, was a basic right lost
during the dark years that began on September 21, 1972,
and won back in 1986. The Freedom of the Press, we all
know, was a basic right lost during the dark years that began
on September 21, 1972, and won back in 1986. To honor
and continue to defend the Freedom of the Press, Globe
Telecom will be joining the active and peace-and freedom-
loving Davao media this year in their celebration of Media
Freedom Day, which is held every 23rd of November since
2010 to commemorate the death of media personalities
who were killed in the line of duty.
Globe, being the strongest peace advocate from the
private sector, had also condemned the senseless killings
of mediamen and decided to join the Davao media in not
forgetting the impunity by which it were committed.
The atrocities have not in any way hamper Globe’s silent
efforts to help bring peace not just in Davao and its
neighboring provinces but the whole of Mindanao in
general. In fact, the killings have only emboldened Globe to
continue its own resolve for peace.
As one of the first private entities to support Davao’s Media
Freedom Day celebration, Globe realized that to defend,
sustain, and broaden this basic democratic right through
print, broadcast or social media, the important direction
or common thread is the continued pursuit of media
excellence.
Beyond the daily coverage of developing events, Globe
wants to further encourage media excellence in civic,
investigative and explanatory journalism that would delve
into such social concerns as freedom from ignorance,
freedom from poverty, freedom from corruption, and
freedom from media censorship, among others.
Media excellence is crucial if our country should leap
forward in terms of social and economic development
within an atmosphere of freedom.
The Annual Media Excellence Awards aims to be of service
in this direction. Globe Telecom wants to recognize Cebu
Media who are breaking new grounds in news dissemination
and the best in communication skills and creativity by
launching the Annual Globe Media Excellence Awards last
October 2011.
Globe Telecom hopes the annual Media Excellence Awards
will serve as the best opportunity and venue for Davao
journalists, broadcasters, bloggers and social media
advocates to be recognized as among the best media
practitioners in the Philippines.
Advocacy and Areas of Concern
All entries for the Globe Telecom Media Excellence Awards
shallexploreandadvocateabovementionedsocialconcerns.
A major consideration will be the social impact of a piece or
a body of journalistic work.
The entries shall likewise touch on any or a combination of
the following areas of concern:
• Business and Entrepreneurship
• Information and Communications Technology
• Environment and Disaster Response
• Peace, Governance and Social Progress
• Youth and Education
Language challenge
There will be no separate categories or distinction for
journalists writing for Bisaya-language dailies. The same
standards of excellence shall be applied for all contenders
for an award whether their works are written in English
or Bisaya. If local languages should develop as part of
developing our identity as Davaoeños and as Filipinos, the
same standards of media excellence should apply.
This should serve as a challenge for Bisaya-language writers
to level up even as it challenges English-language writers
to further hone their craft and set the pace. Having no
separate categories based on language should challenge
journalists to foster the same excellent journalism
standards in both English and Bisaya.
Globe Telecom recognizes the importance of
developing local languages to strengthen our
national identity even as we keep our edge
in English proficiency during the age of
information and globalization.
