AFTER a successful first leg, the MPL Philippines Press Corps is set to hold the second and third editions of the M5 Esports Journalism Workshop in two different campuses on NoV. 25-27.

The group’s second stop will be at Adamson University, partnering with the school’s official publication, the Adamson Chronicle to hold another talk that will include four topics –Basic Esports and Sports Writing, Features Writing, Mobile Journalism, and Media Ethics.

Reynald Magallon of Manila Bulletin will share his expertise in covering both traditional sports and esports, while Mario Limos of Spin.ph and Esquire will discuss the art of writing feature stories.

AC Coloma of ABS-CBN News will delve into the nitty-gritty of mobile journalism and Michelle Lojo of Philstar.com will explore the ethical principles in journalism in the workshop presented by Razer Gold.

“At MOONTON Games, we are guided by our mission ‘Esports for Everyone’ and this workshop aims to inform our community about the opportunities that are open for them, should they want to pursue a career in esports,” said Keith Medrano, MOONTON Games regional PR manager.

“On behalf of MOONTON Games, I’d like to thank the MPL Philippines Press Corps for mounting these insightful workshops with us. We are excited to see the student journalists on the ground armed with the knowledge they gained during the workshops,” he added.

The MPL PH Press Corps will then head to Diliman, teaming up with the UP College of Mass Communication, the UP Film Institute, and Esports Prime Media Inc. to conduct the third leg of the workshop in University of the Philippines-Diliman.

Magallon, Limos, and Lojo will be joined by Calvin Trilles of ONE Esports in the final leg to facilitate an in-depth discussion of the lingos used in Esports Journalism.

Last October, the MPL PH press corps held the first leg during the regular season of the MPL Philippines Season 12 where students from Ateneo, UP, UST, Adamson,

Letran, Lyceum, NU Laguna, and Cavite State University took part in a three-part program that included six courses.
