grabs two Anvil Awards
De La Salle University-Manila won two Anvil Awards--one for
Excellence for its admissions poster titled Future Perfect
and another for Merit for the President’s Report of the DLSU
System for school year 1999-2000.
by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP),
the annual Anvil Awards Night is the biggest event in the
country’s public relations industry. The awarding was held
last February 23 at the Hotel Intercontinental in Makati City.
DLSU-Manila, through the Marketing Communication Office, produced
the marketing materials as part of a more active campaign
to communicate the developments and achievements of the University.
Using the tagline Future Perfect, the admissions poster featured
some of the most successful La Salle alumni--prominent figures
from both government and business sectors. The poster was
distributed to different high schools to give prospective
college applicants an idea that La Salle helped shape the
careers of these successful people.
Applications this year rose to 17,701 from 15,995 registered
last year, even with such factors as potential increase in
the cost of application and tuition fee.
The President’s Report, on the other hand, was cited as ..successfully
incorporating the integrity of an annual report with the visual
appeal of a travel magazine in line with its theme of ‘Rediscovery.’
The Rediscovery theme was based on La Salle System schools’
continuing quest for excellence, while constantly rediscovering
the Lasallian values of service and excellence. The covered
school year highlighted the collective and individual accomplishments
of the System schools, and reflected the Lasallian community’s
commitment to contribute to the nation’s development.
Besting several entries from the business industry, La Salle’s
winning President’s Report was cited alongside the entries
of companies such as the Ayala Group and Union Bank.
