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 Guidons first editor-in-chief Manuel
Colayco. These awards also aim to encourage outstanding campus journalists to
pursue a career in journalism beyond Ateneos 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

opinion in Filipino or English or photos have appeared in the Guidon,
Matanglawin or other regular campus news outlets.
