Winners from MAM Awards 2017

The Commission on Filipinos Overseas is extending the deadline of submission of entries to the biennial Migration Advocacy and Media (MAM) Awards until August 15, 2019. This is in consideration of those submitting media works from overseas.

Now on its 9th year, the biennial MAM Awards recognizes the significant role of the media in the promotion and advocacy of various issues on migration and development. It was conceived in 2011 by the CFO and the Inter-Agency Committee for the December Celebration of the Month of Overseas Filipinos (IAC-MOF) and International Migrants Day in the Philippines.

Eligible for the Awards are works by government and private media outlets, institutions and practitioners in the fields of print, radio, movie and television, advertising and interactive media. The entries must have raised public awareness on issues on Filipino migration, advocated the cause of overseas Filipinos and/or promoted a positive image of overseas Filipinos. Nominees may be based in the Philippines or outside the country.

The MAM Awards consist of six categories: Print Journalism Award, Radio Journalism, Television Journalism Award, Film Media Award, Interactive Media Award and Advertisement Award. Since 2011, this recognition has been conferred on 60 awardees from the Philippines and 17 other countries, namely Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Myanmar, New Zealand, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, UAE, United Kingdom (UK), and the United States of America (USA).
