Perhaps one of the best lessons for the last 3 years that we been doing this contest was that, there will be winners, and non winners.
We have been considerate during the nomination process and the finals, but when the judges results starts arriving, and the tedious, and tasking collaboration and collating starts, we will go back to the criteria and guidelines where we all started.
Walang kaibigan, walang kamag-anak. Criteria and Guidelines matters.
