The Glory Awards were inspired by the legacy of honor and excellence of Dr. Gloria Feliciano, the founding dean of UP mass communication programs, who served from 1965 to 1985.
This is given to a UPCMC alumni who made an impact in mass communication and the society.
Aside from Davila, other recipients include Palanca awardee Dr. Rey de la Cruz, Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal, development communicator Dr. Monina Movido-Escalada, theater artist Lutgardo Labad, and veteran journalist Criselda Yabes.
