For the first time in the history of the Lopez Jaena journalism workshops, it will have a fellow from outside the Philippines. He is Rasha M. Ahmed, a journalist from Egypt.
The 16 fellows were chosen on the basis of their professional background, sample works and story idea for an article they should write during the workshop.
The 15th Lopez Jaena Journalism Workshop is the UP CMC’s contribution to the global campaign against media killings which will be highlighted by the International Day to End Impunity on November 23.
