Stylebible.ph, the online home of Preview magazine, conducted its very first Virtual Style Awards, a platform that aims to give recognition to the movers and shakers of the online style community.
Nominations were done through www.stylebible.ph/virtual-style-awards until June 30, 2013. Preview and Style Bible editors did a rigorous screening of ballots and selected the five finalists per category, which were subject to online voting until the end of July.
Winners are based on 50% online votes and 50% judges’ votes.
I was nominated for Best Online Reporter. According to Stylebible.PH, the Online Reporter award is given to the person with the best, honest, and unbiased reviews and reporting of the most of-the-moment fashion, beauty, and lifestyle news. The other nominees were Christine Dychiao, Ingrid Chua-Go, Paul Chuapoco, and David Guison.
After hounding my friends, readers, ‘followers’ and family here and abroad to vote for me (haha), I bagged the first ever Stylebible.ph Best Online Reporter award! *happy dance*
Thanks to everyone who voted for me and to the judges, mabuhay kayo!
The awards night was held last October 3 at Club Haze:

Finally, sitting mode na with my Mads and Preview’s EIC Pauline Juan and Aryanna.
Our seatmates, the gorgeous Kim Jones (Stylebible.PH VSA Instagram Microblogger winner) and my new thinspiration Stylebible.PH’s Managing Editor Nikki Santiago.
Aryanna’s photo op with cutie pie Jericho Rosales. Echo was present at the event to support his love Kim Jones. Ang tamis. Tamis. Tamis.
This photo for me captures Pauline Juan’s essence—behind the scenes and always busy… Texting. LOL
Eto na!!! And the winner is…
Guess who else won?
I’m so glad that Aryanna went with me to the event! Thanks for the support, sweetheart!

Stylebible.ph Managing Editor Nikki Santiago remarks, “We’re very happy about the outcome of Style Bible’s very first Virtual Style Awards. All 45 names under the different categories were nominated by our users and being part of the roster speaks about their remarkable contribution to the online community. The number of votes of each of the nine winners also tells us of how much impact these personalities have on the readers and I think that is something that deserves recognition. We’re looking forward to VSA 2014!”
Aaaaaaaaaand the pasabog video of the night was one of the #ImAPreviewGirl campaign videos, which gave me and Aryanna a heart attack! LOL
Watch this and DO. NOT. BLINK.:
How Not To Instagram
Again, thank you Stylebible.PH for this prestigious award! It’s award-giving bodies such as yours that really gives credibility to online awards because it is not solely a popularity contest. I’m so honored.
