Globe Tattoo, one of the country’s leading broadband providers recently launched Tatt Awards 2012, the first -ever awards platform recognizing social media or online personalities who have positively influenced and sparked changes in the world.
Last year, the event gathered and shone the limelight on technophiles, video vamps and passionate advocates of change. On its second year, Tatt Awards is set to honor a new batch of digital rockers. What’s more, the new Tatt Council, a group of renowned thought-leaders led by Dong Ronquillo, head of the Tattoo Nomadic Broadband Business, will serve as judges to determine the winners in the different categories. The Council members include award-winning journalist and ABS-CBN News & Public Affairs social media pioneer Maria Ressa; YouTube sensation Mikey Bustos; TV Personality-columnist and style guru Tim Yap; Commissioner to the National Youth Commission and Outstanding student leader Gio Tingson; and Internet and Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAP) Vice President Pao Peña to name a few.
What sets Tatt Awards from other web-centric awards is that it looks beyond mere statistics. It’s not a popularity contest, but a venue for acknowledging individuals who used the social media space to express an opinion, create inspiring works or ignite social change.
So who rocks your online world? Stay glued to www.tattawards.com for the official start of nominations.
