The coffee table book “On the March: The Jesuits in the Philippines Since the Restoration” has won a merit award in the 2019 Gold Quill Awards of the International Association of Business Communicators.
Media Wise Communications won the Gold Quill for the coffee table book, the only entry from the Philippines for the Publications category.
Media Wise joined four other winning entries from the Philippines out of the 202 winners worldwide, namely Jollibee Foods Corp. and Stratworks, Inc.; Aboitiz Group; PAGEONE Group and Center for Health Solutions and Innovations Philippines, Inc.; and ABS-CBN Corporation.
This is the second Gold Quill for Media Wise, having won its first merit award in 2017 with the book “Jesuits in Mindanao: The Mission.”
The coffee table book was conceived as a fundraising project for the Philippine Jesuit Aid Association, an institution headed by Fr. Jose Quilongquilong that aids the elderly, retired and infirm Jesuits, as well as the promotion of Jesuit vocations in the Philippine province.
“On the March” chronicled the journey of the Jesuits as they bring the Catholic faith to the most remote corners of the Philippines.
The book focused on their ministry in education throughout the years, and the many aspects of their apostolate in the country.
Media Wise Communications president Ramoncito Ocampo Cruz and Manuel Engwa served as executive co-publishers of the book.
