Basics, breakthroughs in journalism

NEW TOOLS, same rules.

New technology may have altered the landscape of journalism, but its goal of informing, educating and stimulating positive change remains.

Such was the primary message conveyed by journalists during the 16th edition of Inkblots, the annual National Campus Journalism fellowship organized by the Varsitarian.

Broadcaster Mike Enriquez of GMA Network sees journalism as "vocation," one that requires commitment.

“It is a calling. Mahirap maging alagad ng media,” Enriquez told some 250 fellows last Dec. 1 at the Thomas Aquinas Research Complex (TARC) Auditorium.

Staying relevant while embracing the digital age

THE TECHNOLOGY may be new, but the principles endure.

On the 15th year of “Inkblots,” the annual national campus journalism fellowship of the Varsitarian, student writers were challenged to keep journalism relevant in the age of social media.

In his keynote address, National Artist for Literature F. Sionil Jose urged the group to remain steadfast in upholding the truth even if it seems difficult to do so.

“It’s hard to tell the truth in this country where there is an absence of a critical tradition and where hypocrisy is so pervasive,” Jose told more than 300 fellows at the Albertus Magnus Building.

A week later, Jose had more to say to young writers in his column in the Philippine Star.
