Philippine American Press Club U.S.A.

1st Plaridel Awards

On behalf of our long-time partner Esther Chavez of Filipino news wire INQUIRER.net, and President of the Philippine-American Press Club U.S.A., NAM is inviting our network members, including from mainstream and ethnic media outlets, to join us in celebrating the Philippine American Press Club U.S.A.'s First “Plaridel Awards.”

NAM and PAPC U.S.A. invite all of our media and community colleagues in the San Francisco Bay Area to honor the outstanding work of Filipino-American journalists nationwide, and to meet these writers and reporters who have been the eyes, ears, and advocates of the Filipino American communities nationwide.

Sandy Close, Executive Director of NAM, will deliver remarks as the evening’s Guest Speaker and Odette Keeley, NAM’s News Anchor/Executive Producer and Awards Chair-California, will present the award for Outstanding Community Reporting-Television.

The NAM California Awards Committee provided key insights for this pioneering journalism award ceremony for the Filipino-American media sector.

The name Plaridel was chosen in honor of Marcelo H. Del Pilar, a Filipino patriot, journalist and publisher who brought his craft and zeal as an expatriate in Europe in the late 1800s.

THIS Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
