The 6th Raul L. Locsin Awards for Student Journalism

These yearend awards honor the outstanding contributions of student journalists 
to Ateneo journalism and Philippine campus journalism as a whole.  They 
celebrate the efforts of student journalists who keep alive the tradition of 
fearless, compelling writing that has been the hallmark of the Ateneo campus 
journalism and the writings of The Guidon’s first editor-in-chief Manuel 
Colayco.  These awards also aim to encourage outstanding campus journalists to 
pursue a career in journalism beyond Ateneo’s borders.  All this was envisioned 
by naming the award after Ateneo alumnus Raul L. Locsin, founder of 
BusinessWorld and the first Filipino to receive the Ramon Magsaysay Award for 
Journalism.  The Raul L. Locsin Awards, a project of the Department of 
Communication, recognize the best campus journalists to emerge from the Loyola 

Award Categories.

News/Features (Sports)
Investigative Journalism 

Eligibility.  Graduating seniors whose written works – news, features or 
opinion in Filipino or English – or photos have appeared in the Guidon, 
Matanglawin or other regular campus news outlets.

Selection Process:

1.	Qualified seniors may apply to be a recipient of the awards.

of Communication.

Deadline for submission of applications:  Wednesday, 16 February 2005.

2.	Applicants must submit six (6) copies of three (3) sample works in each 
category for which they are vying.  These should represent the applicant’s body 
of works in campus journalism.  If the applicant also writes off-campus, he/she 
may also submit a maximum of two articles from this body of work.  

3.	A Board of Judges will examine the applications and determine the 
winners for each category.  The Board will be composed of at least three 
journalists or journalism educators affiliated with the university.  They will 
be selected by the Chair of the Department of Communication or his/her 
representative.  The Board may invite the reference person to provide 
additional information during its deliberations.  The decision of the Board, 
with the confirmation of the Chair, is final.

Awards Ceremony.  The awardees will be honored by the Dean of School of Social 
Sciences during a ceremony to be held at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, 9 March 2005, at 
the Social Sciences AudioVisual Room.  Awardees will receive a plaque and a 
citation to be read by the Chair of the Board of Judges.
