November 21 was a night of stunning bloggers, of delicious cocktail drinks and of entertainment. That day, is Bloggys 2015 The Philippine Blogging Awards Gala Night at SM Aura, SMX Convention Center. The Philippine Blogging Awards is the country’s blog awarding event. It recognizes [Filipino] bloggers in their chosen niche.
There are two main awards for the blogs, one is for People’s Choice Award and one is judged by Bloggys’ elite judges from the media. Blogs that passed through nomination and voting stage were those who made it through the cut of finalists.
I was very fortunate to be invited on the Gala Night. Though I didn’t make it to the finals, being able to attend is a bonus.
What’s a gala night without the red carpet?
Lovely music by a ‘”security guard’ man playing saxophone, red carpet and booths from some brands where bloggers can get a chance to network welcomed us. After grabbing a seat, I wandered inside the hall.
Cocktails and snacks are being served at the collaboration area where bloggers can chat and mingle. There are activities which guests, bloggers (and even judges) can enjoy. I participated on the games by ABS-CBN (cable channel). I completed all of the activities!
The feeling of being at the Gala Night is so nostalgic. I remembered my student journalist days when I used to cover events in the school. I have my pen and notebook with me that night. I tried to catch the names of every winner but of course, it’s a little hard. Below are the winners of Bloggys 2015!
