Here is the fifty lucky people to avail of the free lunch and kit for tomorrow. Hooray!

Just be at UP NIGS for the lectures and sessions tomorrow.

fiftyWe already reached fifty pre-registrants. The next pre-registrants (or those who will choose to register on Saturday, November 29) will definitely still be accomodated in the sessions, albeit without the benefit of free lunch.

We’ll release the list of fifty pre-registrants tomorrow. We repeat, though: Even if you we’re not able to pre-register, you may still be accomodated in the lectures and sessions. Just register at the venue itself on Saturday, 9 a.m.

Thanks y’all and see you on Saturday!

We’re all set for Saturday!

Not to worry…

Filed under: Uncategorized — krguda @ 6:30 pm

Nothing like this on Saturday -- just sumptuous food for the brain and heart (we hope).

Not sure if you guys expect a feast come Saturday (hehe, packed lunch lang eh), or may have the impression that you may not be accomodated in the sessions of choice, or just plain goddarn excited. We were wondering this because many are inquiring if they have been included in the first fifty pre-registrants. Not to worry, guys. The pre-registration, for the most part, is just for us to ensure that all the sessions will have ample audience. There was an apprehension as to the popular appeal of writing sessions. Good to know, though, that the written word has not yet lost its appeal among us. As of now, judging from the pre-reg forms turned in, the sessions will probably be well-covered.

As for the lunch, I suppose, it is an added come-on (there is a crisis, after all). Our fear, though, is that a sumptuous course of good ‘ole kanin at ulam may disappoint discriminating tastes. So be forewarned: probably no lechong manok or morcon on styros. We’ll do our best to feed the fifty with decent, edible food.

We plan to post the lucky fifty a day before big Saturday — but they will still have to confirm their registration on the morning of the 29th. Hehe. So for all you who have yet to pre-register and would fancy some decent, edible lunch on the 29th to go with a kit in an afternoon of (what we hope to be) fun-filled and exciting breakout sessions, pre-register now!

Bloggers’ Kapihan endorses PCJS!

Filed under: Uncategorized — krguda @ 6:26 pm


Before we commit the unconscionable sin of forgetting, allow us to thank the guys from Bloggers’ Kapihan for endorsing Pinoy Citizen Journalism Seminar!

Let us also thank Tonyo Cruz, JM Tuazon, Sarah Maramag and others for reposting our announcements!

Pre-registration is still open. Those who pre-register after the first fifty (50) pre-registrants, as well as those who will not be able to pre-register but plan anyway to attend the Seminar, will nevertheless be accomodated in the sessions — albeit without the free lunch and the kit.

We’re all excited to see you all on Saturday!

Rick Bahague of CPU has just confirmed that we have a venue for our Pinoy Citizen Journalism Seminar. It’s on the National Institute of Geological Sciences (NIGS) Building in UP Diliman, Quezon City.


To reach NIGS, one only has to ride the UP IKOT jeepney plying the main university streets. From Philcoa, one can ride the UP-Philcoa jeepney and get off at the security checkpoint. From there, one can ride the UP IKOT jeepney.

Pre-registration will start in a few days. Seen you there!
