Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA), through its Public Information Division (PID), held a series of online training and workshops on the basics of videography, photography, and news writing to Regional Social Media Accounts Administrators and other Regional Fish Port (RFP) personnel nationwide.
The series of virtual activities conducted by the PFDA PID aims to equip all RFP representatives assigned to official unit documentation and events coverage with additional knowledge in preparation for various corporate communication outputs and other public relations projects. In addition, said orientations aim to strengthen the overall information dissemination activities of all PFDA ports through video, photo, and news production.
On March 22 and 23, the PFDA PID conducted a Basic Photography and Videography training and workshop for PFDA RFPs in the Visayas and Mindanao.
All participants were taught about how the camera works, proper camera handling, how to focus properly, and different shooting modes. Also, they learned more about the importance of videography, the main roles of a videographer, the production process, shooting techniques, and the PFDA Standard Video Production Set-up.
Meanwhile, on June 9, the PFDA PID conducted a Basic News Writing training and workshop for all PFDA RFPs nationwide.
This virtual orientation aligns with the PID’s efforts to enhance our agency’s overall corporate communication strategies and improve our information preparation and dissemination efforts through print and digital media.
With these training and workshops, the PFDA is on its way to widening its reach and strengthening its engagements through much more competent and equipped RFPs.
