Mass Media touches virtually every aspect of our daily lives. It plays a significant role in shaping public perceptions on a variety of important issues, both through the information that is dispensed through them, and through the interpretations they place upon this information. When journalists or talk show hosts are insightful and judicious in their reporting, citizens can play a more informed role in the many issues and debates that shapes their communities.
For four straight years, the People Management Association of the Philippine (PMAP) presents the Makatao Awards for Media Excellence to honor members of the mass media (TV, radio and print) for their outstanding works and contributions that enhance public understanding of the role and impact of good people management in both the public and private sector in the country.
