Filipiknows, a social media platform created to connect Filipinos in Qatar and around the globe, has partnered with Future 318 and Trinity Talent Qatar to honour and recognise a number of outstanding Doha-based Filipino workers and organisations through the ‘Filipiknows Fili-Choice Awards’– the first ever Filipino Award in Qatar.
The organising committee has been working to promote top-ranked Filipino companies, products, brands, and service providers in various categories through an independent market research. Filipiknows founder Carlo Yan said he hopes that the recognition will further motivate the awardees to continue raising the bar of excellence for the benefit of fellow Filipinos and the diverse market in Qatar.
The awards will have three categories: Individual, Organisational, and Company or Brands Awards.
Individual Awards: This award recognises Filipinos leading in their field of expertise and demonstrating excellent professional skills, character and attributes as recognised by employers and colleagues. Categories under this award will recognise the achievements of Qatar-based Filipinos working in the country since 2016.
Organisational Awards: This award recognises leading Filipino Organisations in Qatar, in their capacity to extend support and assistance to Kabayans. Categories under this award will recognise the achievements of Filipino Organisations in Qatar servicing the community starting from 2017.
Company or Brands Awards: This is a special recognition for companies or brands trusted and patronised by the Filipino community in Qatar. This category will recognise contribution of brands and/or companies to the Filipino community from 2016.
The Filipiknows Fili-Choice Awards logo is a ‘Quality Seal’ given only to Filipino professionals/workers, companies, products, brands and service providers that is considered of ‘high calibre’. The awarding ceremony, expected to be a night of glamour, glitter and style on a dhow, will be held on 14 December at the Marina Port 1, The Pearl-Qatar.
