DiGi WWWOW Awards 2011

Digi WWWOW Awards, an online voting contest that ran for the past month or so culminated with an awards night over at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) in Sentul on the 12th July 2011. I was privileged to get invited by Qian and Benjamin to witness the first internet based awards. The tagline was "Malaysia's 1st By The People, For the People, Internet for all Awards" and this was truly a first for people to get recognized for all their works through the internet.

We have numerous categories being awarded that night, ranging from "Top Kay Poh" award to the very competitive "Top Makan2 Expert" and "Blogger of The Year" award. For a full listing of the Digi WWWOW Awards 2011 winners, do check their website at http://www.wwwow.my/. For your convenience, I have posted it here below.

I arrived at KLPAC just when the "makan makan" food spread was being served. There were a couple of familiar faces, but the majority of the folks there were really new to me. My conclusion was I wasn't famous, handsome, nor dressed up enough to really mingle with all these famous celebrities that attended the night's event, hence I took solace in the food.

#4 I would like to re-emphasize that this black pepper chopped up sausage is really tasty, yours truly literally stood and wait for fresh sausages to come out because the moment it came out, the sausages were immediately snapped up.
Coming back to this event, we got to see all the winners from each category go down the stage to collect some really cool goodies from each of the organizers. I could only sit and watch in awe. Probably in a few years time I might have the chance to be one of them as well. Something inside me whispered then, "Dream on.."

One thing that caught my eye though was the unique backdrop that was designed by the organizers. It was a simple "construction site" kind of backdrop, with models behind a curtain mimicking people communicating. Check the picture below.

Check out the backdrop, the middle has lasers shooting out, while the side A, B, C is what I'm refering too.

Behind curtain A, we have the shadow of model A using the computer to online while checking his phone. Curtain B sees model B sitting on a toilet bowl checking his phone. Model C has the best job, sitting on what I think is a bean bag while tweeting away. Bear in mind these 3 models have to do these throughout the 2 hour plus awards show.

A rather unique representation indeed.

Overall it was a good night, and I congratulate every winner that went on stage that night to collect their prizes. Well done, and I think DiGi WWWOW Awards is the beginning and start of more recognitions to come for the internet community.
