Winners for Singapore Blog Awards 2013 announced at Shanghai Dolly

It is a wrap!

After four months of campaigning, the annual Singapore Blog Awards drew to a close a few hours ago at Shanghai Dolly in Clarke Quay.

This is the sixth year omy.sg has been running this event. This also marks my seventh year in omy.sg and the sixth Singapore Blog Awards which I got to be a part of. Click here for a walk down memory lane via all the blog posts I have written about the Singapore Blog Awards since the inaugural event in 2008.

I still remember when we first ran the award six years ago, we have to set-up “internet stations” with laptops for guests to upload images or surf our site. Now, everything can be updated by many people at once on social sharing platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram via 3G or WIFI mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Amazing.

The blogging community in Singapore has evolved and grew quite a bit from the time we started the first Singapore Blog Awards and the omy Blog Club. There were bloggers who came and go, but there is also a core group who supported us through all these years. Thank you and do continue to support omy.sg.

The event this year is special for me because it will be my last at omy.sg. Adieus.

Here is the official press release from omy.sg on the results announcement:  

The winners for the Singapore Blog Awards 2013 were announced today at an awards ceremony held at Shanghai Dolly. Mr. Lawrence Wong, Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information, graced the event as the Guest-of-Honour. Over 300 bloggers and guests were present to witness the awards presentation.

Organised by omy.sg, Singapore Press Holdings’ leading bilingual news and entertainment portal, and presented by Panasonic, the Singapore Blog Awards honours independent content producers who devote their time and energy to create and maintain informative and innovative blogs.

The winning bloggers in the ten main award categories each won a trophy designed by Mr Tan Swie Hian, the most expensive living artist in Singapore, and a trip, inclusive of air tickets and accommodation, to the Northern Territory, Australia, amongst other attractive prizes.

The theme for this year’s awards ceremony was “60’s Fever”, in line with this year being the sixth year of the Singapore Blog Awards. Many guests showed up for the awards dressed according to the theme, and had fun mingling with the various bloggers from different walks of life.

I met many bloggers and trade friends at the event. I wished I had time to talk and interact with everyone, but as usual, together with the rest of the omy.sg team, we were too busy running around. If I accidentally appeared rude or ignored you when you approached me at the event, a big apology. I am not like that!

Packed to the brim
