Globe Tatt Awards 2012 Honors The Raddest Of Digital Rockers

Tatt Awards, started last year by Tattoo, the #1 Broadband in the Philippines, has grown bigger this year with 1,050 nomination, cut down to 50 finalists. Winners were chosen by a distinguished panel of Tatt Council members and through online voting.

The Tatt Awards 2012 event, a night of glam rock fashion, fabulous food and the best music provided by the country's premier bands, ushered in the World Social Media and is undoubtedly the highlight of the Social Media Day in the Philippines!

"We are very pleased with the incredible response to this year's Tatt Awards as a kick-off to the World Social Media Day celebration! The digital sphere has evolved tremendously and Tattoo will always be supportive of the remarkable achievements of our digital rock stars," says Dong Ronquillo, Globe Head of Tattoo Nomadic Broadband Business.

"We have realized the impact of social media in our daily lives, either here in the Philippines or around the world. We recognize that the Internet and social media will become more and more pivotal on how our society would think, especially for the upcoming generation." He further revealed that Tattoo will be embarking on a special corporate social responsibility project called Cat@lyst.

"This CSR project will aim to contribute to empowering and educating less privileged Filipino youth through social media. It will also champion nation-building so that online users can also help in the country's development," Ronquillo adds.
