Bloggers strike a pose at the Guardian PCA Night 2016
How's everyone today? Last week, I attended the Guardian People's Choice Awards. The wait is finally over as the moment is here to announce the winners of the coveted Guardian People’s Choice Award (PCA) 2016! In conjunction with Guardian’s 49th Anniversary celebration, Guardian PCA 2016 brings the crème de la crème of brands under one roof as it awards them for their amazing products ranging from personal care and cosmetics to health care and confectionery.
The aim of the People’s Choice Awards was to award those who went above and beyond for product innovation and quality, while providing a platform for the consumers to voice out their favourites amongst the many brands in the market. Aside from rewarding recognition to the best brands and products in Malaysia, the competition also helps improve integrity for their brands as brand owners are constantly keeping up with evolving needs of customers.
