For the first time ever, General Santos City will play host to the Awarding Ceremony of the 2011 Philippine Blog Awards for Mindanao!

The date – November 26, 2011 which is also the same day that the much-anticipated Blogfest Soccsksargen 2.0 is going to happen!

The Philippine Blog Awards which was established in 2007 is the most prestigious award-giving body for blogs in the country.  In 2009, it started giving out separate regional awards for exceptional bloggers from the Visayas and Mindanao.  GenSan News Online Mag was even a winner during that year and its author Bariles received his awards during the 3rd Mindanao Bloggers Summit in Cagayan de Oro.

A year later, he received another PBA-Mindanao Award during its awarding ceremonies at Zamboanga City, which hosted the 4th Mindanao Bloggers Summit.

This year, it is the turn of General Santos City to mount the by-invitational Awarding Ceremony and with Mr. & Miss GenSan director Dino Veloso at the helm, expect that night to be one event the bloggers of Mindanao will never forget!  Hopefully, the nominees will be announced a month before November 26 to help them prepare for the travel to the Tuna Capital for the Oscar Awards-themed event.
