Citizen journalism goes beyond reportage
 (The Philippine Star)


MANILA, Philippines - Close to half a million Bayan Patrollers are using citizen journalism skills to engage candidates and government and push solutions to community problems.

As ABS-CBN revs up its Halalan2013 campaign with a final swing of citizen journalism and voters’ empowerment workshops, its integrated news service is tapping the wonders of digital technology to present viewers with the country’s broadest interactive election coverage.

Bayan Mo iPatrol Mo (BMPM), the country’s longest-running citizen journalism program, conducted with partner schools and organizations 46 voters’ empowerment forums and workshops in the last semester of 2012.

ABS-CBN’s Integrated News Division has also launched its KampanyaSerye, providing more in-depth coverage of key electoral races in the country.

The cable news channel ANC, DZMM on radio and the Current Affairs group, through Umagang Kay Ganda, are also dedicating hours to Harapan, a forum that dissects candidates’ platforms.

 BMPM’s new slogan, Tayo Na, anchors the network’s election campaign. The call echoes reality on the ground, where citizens are using social media not only to call attention to community problems but also to organize and mobilize collective initiatives for change.


“Citizens are saying, it is not enough just to vote. They are determined to monitor the elections and help keep them honest and peaceful. Even more important, citizen journalists are using new skills to remind politicians of unmet promises and unfinished tasks,” said Ging Reyes, ABS-CBN SVP for integrated news.

KampanyaSerye, a series of teleserye-style documentaries that started last Jan. 14 where the network’s journalists explore the stories behind the headlines, campaign promises, drama and characters in key Halalan2013 battlegrounds.

KampanyaSerye’s special on political dynasties titled Kamag-anak Inc., which aired Sunday, received positive feedback.

“This project aims to bring out the issues that matter to the electorate and show the competencies of aspiring leaders,” Reyes said. The documentaries air on TV Patrol, ANC, DZMM TeleRadyo and on ABS-CBNNews.com, which provides a digital home for the “producers’ cut.”

DZMM, meanwhile, was the first broadcast news org to gather candidates in a public forum titled Bagito o Beterano? The DZMM Halalan 2013 Forum last month was held at the University of the East-Manila.

ABS-CBN Rallies Final Call for Honest Election via "Bayan Mo, Ipatrol Mo" Bus ng Bayan


One week before the May 13 polls, ABS-CBN’s “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na” rounds up citizens to vote and fight for clean and honest elections via its Bus ng Bayan that will tour around Metro Manila this Monday (May 6).

The BMPM Bus ng Bayan will have ABS-CBN anchors Atom Araullo, and Jing Castaneda, and Tambayan 101.9 DJs Bea and Chacha on-board. The BMPM Team will visit different barangays and schools to pick-up Bayan Patrollers in Barangay Commonwealth in Quezon City, STI in Taguig, Barangay Sta. Ana in Manila, and Luneta Park.

It will culminate in a mini-concert at the ABS-CBN Center Road at 5:30 PM, featuring performances by Itchyworms, Rivermaya, KZ Tandingan, Ney Dimaculangan, Silent Sanctuary, and many more. It will also mark the historic Pledge for Change, a symbol declaration of commitment where the attendees pledge for clean and honest elections.

The BMPM Bus ng Bayan, which will also be staged simultaneously in Cebu and Davao, will remind citizens not only to participate in the elections but also announce last minute reminders of what they should do on May 13.

Named “Boto Mo, iPatrol Mo” in 2007 and “Boto Mo iPatrol Mo: Ako ang Simula” in 2010, BMPM pioneered citizen journalism in the country, empowered Filipinos to use technology to patrol their votes, and challenged them to become the start of the change they want for the country.

In 2009, BMPM broke the story on the Maguindanao Massacre when the first photo from the crime scene was sent to BMPM by a Bayan Patroller only minutes after the killings.

The trailblazing BMPM has brought home various awards from prestigious international and local award-giving bodies such as the International Gold Quill Awards, Asia Pacific PR Awards, the Philippine Quill Awards, the Anvil Awards, and the Tambuli Awards.
