Several finalists were present to accept their nominations like Laureen Uy, Rajo Laurel, Divine Lee, Carlos Celdran, Noemi Lardizabal-Dado, Elizabeth Angsioco, Dean Jorge Bocobo, Armi Millare of Up Dharma Down, Johnoy Danao, Abe Olandres, Carlo Ople, and Bianca Gonzalez, among others.

"It certainly is a rare opportunity to have all the biggest names in social media in one venue. And this is the very reason why Tattoo has created this kind of event. It is to give the much deserved recognition to the people who have exerted time and effort to change the lives of many" said Tattoo Head of Nomadic Broadband Business and Tatt Council member Dong Ronquillo.
