10th Philippine Web Awards

The 10th Annual Philippine Web Awards (or the Webby’s) is now up and online. This will be the second year in a row that they’ve added Blogs in their list of categories. Last year’s winner was Noemi with her aboutmyrecovery.com blog along with my two other group blogs in the finals.


Again, this year’s Webbys will require a nomination fee — Php2,500 for each nominee except for blogs, organizations and and personal sites which is just Php250.

You think it’s still worth to join the PWA? Here’s my take on that.

  1. I have heard of the Webbys when my college’s website (Mapua) won the award as best college website last year. Wait, was it the webbys or another web award?

    I think I’ll go and read the contest mechanics before deciding if I’m going to nominate my blog or not.

    Hmm.. could my month-old blog compete with other well established blog in the blogosphere? I don’t think so, but I think I could benefit from the exposure.

  2. Argh. Tried paying online for a site nominated under the “Blogs” category, and the fee shown was for $45 instead of $5.

    so even if your site or blog is really the best there is but you didn’t pay to be nominated… you’re out?

    I don’t think the result will represent the authentic meaning of what they say “Honoring the best Filipino-made web sites…”

    I had the same problem as Manuel Villoria. I think there’s a bug in the PayEasy ordering system.

    Tried paying online for “Personal” category… which is supposed to be Php250 (or US $5)… but the fee shown was always for the other categories — for $45 instead of $5.

    … can’t find a contact e-mail on the site… Who to contact about inquiring about $?

  5. Dessert Queen says:

    Ah, silly me… the confirmation e-mail that was sent after submitting nomination is valid:

    [email protected]

    well i tried depositing 250 bucks intot heir metrobank account as posted on their site. tried faxing the deposit slip to the number stated on the confirmation email 632-8128401 to 03 loc. 127… it turns out the local (127) didn’t exist -_-

    after a week of calling through hoops they gave me a working fax line, though i wonder what happened to my fax.

    It is ironic that they are honoring the best of Filipino-websites, but their own website is not functioning as expected and have wrong information.

    the nominees were posted last week though there’s still no link on their site, i don’t know if it’s official or not.
