Rock Ed congratulates Mr. Rem Zamora for winning the Gold Prize in the General News category of the First Asian Press Photo Contest. This was organized by the Asia News Network and the China Daily. Five hundred photojournalists from all over the world joined the contest submitting a total of over 20,000 entries.
Rem Zamora was the one who covered Rock Ed’s relief mission to Mindoro on Christmas Day of 2005. As a volunteer, he has documented several of our events as his contribution to the organization. He graduated from the University of the Philippines with a degree in Business Administration and Accountancy in 2001. He first worked for Sycip, Gorres and Velayo (SGV) but decided to join the Philippine Daily Inquirer as a staff photographer because his passion lay there. Rem is soft spoken and calm in demeanor, he is only 25 yet he shows the grit of a veteran photojournalist. Rock Ed is proud to have him in its roster of volunteers.
Mabuhay ka, Rem.
