Agriculture takes center stage in 18th UP ComBroadSoc Gandingan Awards

The UP ComBroadSoc Gandingan Awards will recognize national, local, and online media through a program to be staged on May 4, 2024 at the Charles Fuller Baker Memorial Hall with the theme “Agrikultura: Mga Kuwento ng Hamon at Pag-asa” for its 18th year.

First given away in 2007, Gandingan Awards remains to be the only student organization-led and university-based award-giving program that focuses on development-oriented media work and personalities.

Winners are carefully selected from 200 entries submitted by 28 media networks and platforms that best capture, through stories, the pressing problems faced by farmers, fisherfolk, and other concerned groups, and how they affect the overall agricultural landscape in the country.

UP Community Broadcasters’ Society, the award-giving body, is a media-oriented socio-civic student organization at the University of the Philippines Los Baños. For this year, entries received by the organization highlight the call of farmers for genuine agrarian reform and fair compensation, the looming concern over food security and the increasing prices of agricultural commodities, as well as the struggles of fishers and foresters against deforestation, overfishing, territorial disputes, and the depletion of natural resources.

Gandingan awards

The awarding ceremony will feature performances from Filipino talents such as Talahib People’s Music, UPLB Sandayaw Cultural Group, UPLB Talent Pool, and Harmonya: The String Ensemble of UPLB. 

Through the Gandingan Awards, UP ComBroadSoc continuously encourages media practitioners to harness development as the center of their reportage for the betterment of the lives of the Filipino people. 

Limited seats for the audience will be available for sale soon. Proceeds will go to a public service activity with Pambansang Kilusan ng mga Samahang Magsasaka or PAKISAMA, a 35-year-old national movement and confederation of family farmer organizations.
