MAM Awards 2019

Greetings from the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO)!

We are pleased to inform the Post that due to public demand, the CFO is again extending the deadline of submission of entries to the biennial Migration Advocacy and Media (MAM) Awards until September 15, 2019.

Eligible to the Awards are works by the government and private media outlets, institutions, and practitioners in the fields of print, radio, movie, television, advertising, and interactive media published or released from January 1, 2018 to July 31, 2019. Entries must have raised public awareness on issues on Filipino migration, advocated the cause of overseas Filipinos and/or promoted a positive image of overseas Filipinos. Nominees may be based in the Philippines or outside the country.

All the entries will be screened and evaluated by the MAM Awards Committee composed of representatives from the CFO, Philippine Migrants Rights Watch (PMRW), Inter-Agency Committee on the Celebration of the Month of Overseas Filipinos (IAC-MOF), overseas Filipino sector, and media sector.

The MAM Awards consist of six categories: Print Journalism Award, Radio Journalism, Television Journalism Award, Film Media Award, Interactive Media Award and Advertisement Award. Since 2011, this recognition has been conferred on 60 awardees from the Philippines and 17 other countries, namely Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Myanmar, New Zealand, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, UAE, United Kingdom (UK), and the United States of America (USA).

In this regard, we are again respectfully requesting the Post’s usual assistance in disseminating the information about the extension of the deadline of submission of entries, by sharing the news on Facebook, and posting the attached primer in its website. The Post may likewise submit its own migration-related media works. The MAM Awards Primer and Nomination Form are attached, for the Post’s reference and dissemination.
