PINOY MEDIA CONGRESS
The Pinoy Media Congress is the country's biggest and longest running annual gathering of communication students, professor, experts and practitioners. A project of ABS-CBN and the Philippine Association of Communication Educators Foundation (PACEF), the PMC aims to prepare the next generation of Filipino communication professionals and medic practitioners through a series of talks and activities with the current leaders in the media industry. The PMC started in 2006 and over the past ten years, the two groups have joined forces to create a venue - a bridge - wherein current media practitioners and mass communication students can meet and interact, exchange ideas and inspire each other to be excellent and responsible media men and women.
