Back for the third year, the AsiaOne People's Choice Awards 2010 has now expanded to 31 categories, of which 13 are new. The final results will be based entirely on readers' voting of the shortlisted candidates. The results will be announced at a presentation ceremony in the first quarter of 2011.
Organised by Singapore Press Holdings’ (SPH) leading news and lifestyle web portal, the AsiaOne People’s Choice Awards is a testament to the popularity and acceptance of the nominated brand names and products by AsiaOne's audience.
Mr Adrian Tay, Editor of AsiaOne, said: “AsiaOne's readers are a discerning lot. Through the People's Choice Awards, the endorsement from the votes of this high-calibre audience will become a benchmark for all companies to follow. Through the publicity and recognition generated by the Awards, AsiaOne hopes to work together with trade partners to engage its readers at a more intimate level."
