The First Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards

Hello Filipino Book Bloggers! How’s everyone doing? 🙂

Just a quick, quick post to share a major announcement! Presenting the first Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards— an award chosen by us readers to honor our favorite Philippine published books! 🙂

The Filipino Readers Choice Awards seeks to engage the Filipino reading public in honoring their favorite Philippine-published titles. An initiative of the Filipino Book Bloggers Group, the Filipino RCA was established to develop awareness and appreciation of Philippine literature; recognize the reader’s role in creating the meaning and experience of a literary work; and give the readers a voice in the Philippine book industry.

Nomination period is up until July 22, 2012, and you can nominate any Philippine published book from January 2010 to December 2011 at the online nomination form. Categories include:

  • Children’s picture book
  • Chick lit
  • Novel in English
  • Novel in Filipino
  • Comics / Graphic novels
  • Short story anthology
  • Essay anthology
  • Poetry

Updates on the nominees and the awards will be posted at the Filipino ReaderCon 2012 website, so be sure to check back there every week to see how your nominated book is doing. The winners will be awarded on the 2nd Filipino ReaderCon: United We Read, which will happen on August 18, 2012 at the Filipinas Heritage Library.

This time, we get to decide. 🙂 Feel free to post this information on your blogs, and do nominate your favorite Filipino books! 🙂
