Bukidnon Online blogger bags award at GMEA 10
The Globe Group named the winners of the Globe Media Excellence Awards (GMEA) @10 last March 31, 2023 at Radisson Blu, Cebu City, honoring exceptional reporting across platforms in Visayas and Mindanao. And the founder and blogger behind Bukidnon Online, the longest-standing blog about Bukidnon, received the award for Digital Storytelling: Best Blog Post (Mindanao).
Maria Irene Sabana Aserios, who is also the blogger behind the multi-award winning Mindanaoan, bested 2 other finalists. All GMEA finalists went through a tough and thorough screening process first before they got shortlisted.
Aserios’ award-winning piece was about Teaching Social Media and Digital Marketing in 8 Towns Around Mindanao (During the Pandemic).
Globe feted winners in 16 categories, including individuals and teams that showcased excellence in telling stories that touched on Globe’s sustainability pillars: Digital Nation, Care for People, and Care for the Environment. These pillars represent the company’s commitment to creating a balance between economic growth, social development, and environmental conservation.
At the event, Yoly Crisanto, Globe Group’s Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer, commended the winners and thanked the media and top-caliber judges and screeners for supporting GMEA since its inception in 2013. She underscored the company’s relentless pursuit of delivering life-enabling and life-sustaining innovations to customers.
GMEA@10 honored various media platforms, from traditional news outlets to social media advocates, for stories on a wide range of topics, from environmental conservation to social justice. This year, GMEA again partnered with SGV as its official tabulator, ensuring fairness and transparency of the awards.
