Like most skills, journalism takes practice so one can master the craft. We therefore offer a more in-depth approach in the 16th Word Cup Philippines: Fifth Masterclass which shall highlight their ability to write and create winning entries.
We believe that an authentic journalism workshop is the most effective way to impart working knowledge in journalism. Last July, we provided 270 Word Cup participants an actual news coverage by having them experience working side by side with media professionals in the live coverage of seven events, namely:
Live Sports Coverage:The Asian Obstacle Course Racing Championships (Quirino Grandstand) The ASEAN Para Obstacle Course Racing Championships (Quirino Grandstand) The National Milo Marathon (Mall of Asia)The Pencak Silat demonstration (Bayview Park Hotel)
Live Press briefings: Toward a Livable City: Balancing Environment and Development in the Metropolis (Las Pinas-Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area)The Philippine Cinema’s Centennial: Quo Vadis? (GSIS Museo ng Sining) The Philippine Global Initiative to Decongest Cities (GSIS Museo ng Sining)
We’re proud to share with you the Aug. 1, 2019 release of Manila Bulletin which published Word Cup participants’ coverage of the Las Pinas Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area. The first Masterclass output was published May 30 which featured the Boracay rehabilitation. Students and teachers may have their opportunity to get published in our upcoming September Masterclass.
In addition to learning by doing, we ensure that we give feedback to the work of our participants through the insightful critiquing of their outputs. Along with the training, we also have bundled a national level contest or evaluation.
At Word Cup, we offer an out-of-the-box experience that will allow our participants attain their full potential. We have taken a reality-based approach through experiential learning in our activities.
Experience a more in-depth, relevant and authentic journalism training. Sign up now and be a champion! Sincerely yours,
EUGENIO SONNY OCHOA CALAPIT, Ed.D., En.P., LPTManaging Partner & Conference Director
