The annual selection of TAAFA candidates is simple: Journalists entering the ACCER Awards Competitions are selected in the preliminary stage, called finalists stage. These journalists automatically qualify to attend the Academy (TAAFA) which is held prior to the Awards Gala Night where the Winners would be announced.

To help transform this training into TAAFA, PACJA seeks partnership with relevant organizations to host the participants for a longer period, and to bring additional experts as resource persons for the training process.
