The Donna Cruz website won as People’s Choice for Best Film/Celebrity site (it is also one of the 5 finalists). Thank you to all the site visitors who supported and voted for this site.


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, and many more. They make these really cool and sophisticated websites.
