In recognition of the significant role of the media in information dissemination and
advocacy of migration and development, the Migration Advocacy and Media (MAM)
Awards was conceived in 2011 by the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) for the
Celebration of the Month of Overseas Filipinos and International Migrants Day in the
Philippines in December every year. Established in 2007 by virtue of Administrative
Order 202, the IAC is chaired by the Philippine Migrants Rights Watch (PMRW) and cochaired by the Commission on Filipinos Overseas.

The MAM Awards recognize the positive and significant contributions of media outlets,
institutions and practitioners in the fields of print, radio, movie and television,
advertising and internet from the government and private media organizations in the
Philippines and abroad, in raising public awareness on issues on Filipino migration (i.e., human trafficking, illegal recruitment, brain drain and brain circulation, remittance flows, political crisis, families left behind by migrants, etc.) advocating the cause of Filipinos overseas, and promoting a positive image of Filipinos overseas.
