About a month ago, I received an email from the organizers of the 2015 Globe Media Excellence Awards informing me that I was shortlisted (later officially nominated) for the Blogger of the Year award.
The Globe Media Excellence Awards recognizes media practitioners who excel in “civic, investigative and explanatory journalism, with focus on pressing social concerns such as freedom from ignorance, poverty and corruption.”
I was shortlisted because of my blog post on the Mahiga Creek Reduce Eliminate Danger Zone (REDZ) River clearing project. Unexpected
The 2015 Globe Media Excellence Awards for Visayas Awarding Ceremony was held on September 24 at the Grand Convention Center of Cebu.
My Cebu Photo Blog on the nominees board! 😀
The award went to Ms. Glady T. Reyes from Bacolod. Congratulations, Ms. Reyes! 🙂
Huge thanks to Globe for inviting me to the event. It was a great first time experience. 🙂
And thanks to everyone who still drops by my blog every now and then. As you all know, I just switched to a paid domain and it’s like starting from the very bottom in terms of views and online standing. Plus, there’s the annual fees which I previously didn’t have to deal with at all. Haha. But, yeah, I hope this little effort will in one way or another help promote Cebu to the world. All for Cebu! 🙂
ALSO, MCPB is turning 9 years old next month. So this nomination was such a great birthday gift.
Salamat ninyong tanan! Payt Bisdak! 🙂
