Congratulations to all the #PANAtaAwards2022 winners for truly creating a fine representation of the Filipino brand builder. To prove effectiveness requires a business acumen with ears constantly on the ground. It takes an acute marketing sense to build on a human truth that can change behavior. Each of this year’s winners has not only done so successfully but their impact will be felt for years to come.
The prestigious event was streamed via PANA FB page and official YouTube channel. Hosted by Cignal TV’s news anchor Julius Babao, with special performances from Kapuso star Ruru Madrid and next gen P-pop star Ver5us, it brought together the marketing and brand building industry as it progresses to new beginnings.
#PANAtaAwards2022 was made possible through the generous support of its event & media agency partner, PraXis and creative agency partner Vitalstrats Creative Solution.
Special mention also goes to its media partners – Cignal TV5, GMA7, Monster RX, Manila Broadcasting Company, Wish FM, Win Radio, Meta and the Inquirer Group of Companies; its online magazine partner Adobo Magazine and chatbot partner Megamobile. The professional management of P&A Grant Thornton as the auditing firm and Ryan Alvin Torrejos, the psychometrician, provided an objective and unbiased perspective on the evaluation and measure of the results.
The World Federation of Advertisers and the Ad Standards Council, 2 industry icons, have been consistent in encouraging a healthy and progressive competition to bring out the best in advertising practice and quality. For this, #PANAtaAwards is also very grateful.
PANATA Awards 2023 will be held in the 2nd quarter, earlier than this year’s competition and so we are giving a shout out to brands to be ready once again with their entries.
