DigitalFilipino.com Web Awards 2008 to be launched soon

The DigitalFilipino.com Web Awards 2008 shall go live soon to start accepting nominations freely from the public in more than thirty categories. All entries shall be judged by members of the DigitalFilipino.com Club as part of its advocacy in learning and promoting e-commerce as a tool for business development.

We aim to advocate the use of Internet and e-Commerce for business development, through the identification, promotion, and highlighting of best e-Commerce practices from various websites in the Philippines.

Websites in over thirty categories will be reviewed and judged for their ability to create a noticeable presence on the Internet – their ability to be seen and heard among all the noise and clutter of the Net. Commercial websites will also be reviewed for their ability to conduct e-Commerce in simple yet professional manner.

All entries are nominated by the public as well as from industry, and will be judged openly by members of the DigitalFilipino.com Club. We will use the lessons learned we got last year in shortlisting and evaluating the entries that will be submitted this year.

It is hoped that through the promotion of outstanding websites and peer review process while judging, will give us a better understanding on the benefits of the Internet as well as the various ways in which e-Commerce can play a vital part in business development.
