By Ed Ciby

Best Magazine celebrated its Paper Anniversary through an award ceremony and outreach activity at the Teatrino in Greenhills. The no-frills recognition program was the centerpiece project of the publication in 2018.

"It is the magazine's aim to help people and share in our own little way. This is our third awarding event this year. All of our awardees become inspirations for others to emulate," intimated publisher Richard Ferdinand Hiñola.

The magazine awarded the Philippine Faces of Success as well as the Best Quality Brands that made a distinction in 2017 and 2018.

 Branding is one of the most important aspects of a marketing strategy. It deals with core values of any given label and how it is being projected to its audience in a market setting.

This year's recipients of the Best Quality Brand awards included hotel chain Sogo, Perfection, Montage, ACG Jewelry, Ori natural soap, PR Diamond Point Realty, Aronia Absolute, wellness center Courbe, Eye Mo, Lick iced tea, World Premiere/Prebio, group band Crib, and Powerherbs.

Determination, hard work, perseverance, and good luck were some of the attributes that greatly helped this year's list of awardees wherever their respective undertakings and/or endeavors took them.

The impressive roster included singer Aljun Cayawan, Hon. Ina Olivarez, Edgar Gahisan, Cindy Madduma, Alpearl Saldon Tabiliran, Aquilina Celis Gudito, Faye Tangonan, Lourdes Doria, Prince Renaldo, Dra. Emilhy Sevilla, Joel Maniquis, Dr. Homer Mendoza, Dante Salamat, TV show host Emelie Katigbak, beauty queen Josephine Canonizado, Dr. Joseph Lee, makeup artist Edward Doblado, Avon Morales, pageant organizer Ovette Ricalde, Bamba Leano, Billy Santo, Hon. Handy Lao, Carlo Galang, Dr. Rey Salinel, Gio Flores, Aaron Domingo, Joan Gudito, actors Keanna Reeves, Edgar Allan Guzman, Martin Escudero, and Mon Confiado, as well as print media correspondent and blogger Earl D.C. Bracamonte.

The event's outreach recipients were two little girls who, at very tender ages, had to combat deadly conditions: Princess Tagle who suffers from hydrocephalus and Nami Mercado from brain tumor.

"Princess gained a marked decrease of her lump from 5.5 to 2.5 inches. She has regained her eyesight, which she lost for a while. She just finished her third cycle of radiation in late September.

"Nami, on the other hand, has a total of four procedures to undergo. Before her first surgery, her parents were told that she won't live long. Through our benefactors help, her parents risked the surgeries. They are now preparing Nami for her fourth and final procedure," Hiñola added.

At the close of the ceremonies, Mutya ng Pilipinas 2000 Josephine Canonizado and PTV-4 show host Emelie Katigbak were named the evening's Best Dressed ladies, while actor Edgar Allan Guzman was named their gentleman counterpart.
