Globe Telecom has announced the roster of shortlisted entries for the 2016 Globe Media Excellence Awards (GMEA) in Visayas. Eighty-seven (87) shortlisted entries were chosen from a total of 789 entries submitted by print, online and broadcast journalists, columnists, bloggers, and social media influencers from Cebu, Bacolod, and Iloilo.
Now on its 5th year, the GMEA continues to recognize excellence in journalism exemplified by members of the print, broadcast, online, and social media in Visayas and Mindanao.
