The 1st Mobile Bayani Awards

The 1st Mobile Bayani Awards aim to acknowledge the three Filipino individuals, companies or non-profit organizations that made an indelible footprint in our local mobile space.  These are the heroes who have made the most impact on the local mobile scene.  Some may never have even been properly recognized for their contributions.

From now until August 12, 2011 August 19, 2011, MobileMonday Manila will be accepting nominations for the 1st Mobile Bayani Awards.  Anyone may nominate an individual, company or non-profit organization as a Mobile Bayani.  Self-nomination is also accepted.  Nominees will be considered according to any of the following criteria.  Nominees need not fit all criteria. (Example: It is possible that a non-profit organization is nominated based on execution and community impact alone.)  The questions below each criteria serve only as a guide to help you send in a nomination.  Anyone can send as many nominations as they want.
