The search for the 2nd Journ.ph Best Information Officer Blogger contest of Smart Communications is ongoing in Regions 6, 7 and 8, a government press release said.
The contest aims to find the best bloggers among information officers, either regular, contractual or casual, and working in government agencies or local government units in the three regions, who are registered as mentors at journ.ph, a wordpress-powered blog where student journalists can publish campus and community stories.
The blog was part of the online campus journalism program of the company and the Ateneo Java Wireless Competency Center, the press release also said.
