UP-CGG takes pride in initiating unique activities outside the University related to issues on mass media, government and the society. It has even partnered with Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, University of Asia and the Pacific, and the University of Santo Tomas, among other schools. As an effect, the organization is more known outside UP.



Mediamorphosis 1 and 2 (July 2003 and 2004)

Mediamorphosis is an original idea of UP-CGG, with the Philippine Daily Inquirer as its main partner.



Effective communication for future members of the media is indeed hard to develop. This holds true especially today when the media needs to evolve to be at par with the rapid turnover of events in our society. Sad to say, mass media students have no ready access to answers on their questions related to issues in the media. For this reason, UP-CGG has tapped the best media practitioners to somehow erase the doubts of communication students and answer their questions about their future industry.


Mediamorphosis was held at the RCBC Tower in Makati City and at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City. Some of the speakers included Inquirer columnists Conrado de Quiros and Rina Jimenez-David, PCIJ executive director Shiela Coronel, directors Jose Javier Reyes and Raymund Red, GMA 7 newscaster Mike Enriquez, independent filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik, and McCann Erickson’s Hans Vito.



SUPERFEST (October 2005)

Superfest is another project that served as part of the Inquirer Seminar Series. In cooperation with the chapters of the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) based in Ateneo and La Salle, UP-CGG relived the past 20 years since the advent of the alternative press during the Marcos regime. This was represented by the birth of the Inquirer. It anchored on the theme s of people power and the search for “national identity,” in which the media has the power to influence and move people on issues surrounding these themes.


The seminar-forum was held at the UP Film Institute. Senators Manuel “Mar” Roxas, Edgardo Angara and Francis Pangilinan, Inquirer’s Conrado de Quiros, McCann-Erickson’s Vice-President Micky Domingo, Philippine Science High School teacher Dr. Josette Biyo, GMA 7’s Jiggy Manicad, Palanca awardee Lourd de Veyra, Comics scholar and UP English Professor Emil Flores were present to speak on the themes of the seminar.




The forum responded to the need of students to follow ethical standards in investigative reporting and research. UP-CGG was joined by the original Probe Team, led by multi-awarded broadcast journalist and 2007 Gawad Plaridel Awardee Cecilia “ChecheLazaro (who was former chair of CMC’s Broadcast Communication department), in formally launching the organization in CMC.
