DOST-PCAARRD salutes the hardworking media practitioners who fill important roles and render invaluable support in science and technology (S&T) promotion, commercialization, and adoption. The PCAARRD Professional Media Award (PPMA) gives recognition in two main categories: print and broadcast. Under the print category, awards are given for articles published in national, regional, and local dailies; magazines; and professional newsletters. Broadcast awards are given for programs aired over the radio (television is included but currently not implemented). Everyone is invited to nominate/ submit entries to the PPMA, which has extended its deadline until end of June 2013. Please find the attached forms and awards brochure.
