Great news for Mindanao bloggers! The Philippine Blog Awards (PBA) now has special awards for blogs made in Mindanao and by Mindanaoan bloggers! So if you’re a blogger and if you’re from the beautiful island of Mindanao, then go ahead and nominate your own blog for the PBA Mindanao Special Awards. The awarding ceremony will be held on October 24, 2009 in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao – in time for the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3.
You can nominate your Mindanao blogs in these categories:
Mindanao Advocacy Blog
In line with the objectives of the Mindanao Bloggers Community, the Best Advocacy Blog is a blog that exemplifies how an online publication can bring a worthy cause to the consciousness of a broad audience. It is a blog that inspires its readers to take action and participate in an ongoing discussion of the issues at hand. Special points go to blogs that promote the best and true images of Mindanao.
The Best PhotoBlog is one that brings the most beautiful images of Mindanao to the fore. It is a blog that evokes passion and inspiration, and clearly shows the blogger’s love for Mindanao. However, it must not be a site that harbors untrue or doctored images that lie about the true nature of Mindanao’s land and people.
Uniquely Mindanao Blog
This blog, as soon as it is viewed, is clearly identifiable as being from and about Mindanao. It evokes a feeling of belongingness among Mindanao readers, and an appreciation and understanding of what Mindanao truly is among non-Mindanaoan readers. The Uniquely Mindanao Blog champions the objectives of the Mindanao Bloggers Community, and contributes to the realization of these goals.
Mindanao Destination Blog
Beyond being merely a blog geared towards tourism, the Best Destination Blog strongly represents the locale (city, town, region) that the bloggers writes about. This blog is passionate about the promotion of his or her chosen locale for tourism and/or business, and publishes news and opinion articles for a well-rounded view of the destination.
