December 9, 1998. This day is a memorable day in the Internet history of the Philippines. The first national award-giving body for excellent websites, the 1st Philippine Webby Awards (brought to you by IDG, and The Web) is happening on this very day, and yes, the Donna Cruz website is a part of this event.
Winners of the 1998 Philippine Webby Awards. December 9, 1998 @ Hard Rock Cafe, Makati, Philippines.
The night was full of people that are considered very cool and ‘gods’ of the Philippine internet industry then: Ronnie Miranda (the webmaster of The Sharon Cuneta website) is there, Jim Ayson, creator of PhilMusic.com, and many more. They make these really cool and sophisticated websites.
This is the “We’ve been nominated!” nominee icon of the 1998 Philippine Webby Awards.
