Call for Applicants - Copy Editor/Layout Artist


Copy Editor/Layout Artist for AMTP5 Key Documents

The Philippine National AIDS Council (PNAC) in exercise of its technical advisory role as mandated by Republic Act 8504, or the Philippine AIDS Prevention and Control Act of 1998, recently developed key documents and M&E products related to the implementation of the Fifth AIDS Medium-Term Plan, the 2011-2016 Philippine Strategic Plan on HIV and AIDS (Fifth AMTP). These documents are intended to be published as monographs, and distributed among partners and stakeholders in the national response as part of specific tactics in PNAC's conduct of advocacy social marketing, partnership capacity building, and M&E utilization. These publications shall need to be designed and packaged in consideration of best available distribution channels as well as accessibility and usability demands from the target readership.

This year, two key documents will be commissioned for typesetting, layout design, and pre-press proofreading, as follows:
  • Fifth AMTP Monitoring and Evaluation Plan
  • Philippine HIV and AIDS Research and Evaluation Agenda 2011-2016 (PHAREA)


Guided by PNAC, represented by its M&E Officer, and in close coordination with UNAIDS, the editor/layout artist will:

(1)    Proofread and edit the two key documents, carefully watching out for errors in syntax, grammar, spelling, inconsistencies in use of words or phrases and ensuring adherence to acceptable style guides, without altering the substance, style and format of the document;
(2)    Design and layout the two key documents, ensuring adherence to accepted layout and design standards, and using blurbs and captions, as and when necessary;
(3)    Copyedit the two key laid out documents, ensuring consistencies in look, format, captions, titles, footnotes, etc., and watching out for such errors as hanging texts, misplaced prepositions, improper alignment, color inconsistencies, etc.;
(4)    Finalize the design, ensure proper page bleeds and save in high-res, printer-ready format, ensuring that all links and fonts are included in the DVD to be provided as final output.
