Every year, the Gawad Geny Lopez Jr. Bayaning Pilipino Awards, the search for modern-day heroes, makes a final call for nominations after its launch in South Korea and Qatar in the last quarter of 2016; and deadline for nominations is set on February 15.
The award body aims to recognize individuals who in their simple ways exemplify Filipino values:
- Promote Filipino culture and heritage through a showcase of the Philippines’ best and a moving forward through education;
- Encourage positivism and participation in the community
- Focus their efforts to serve others, at times breaking norms or innovating; and
- Transcend social barriers
Nominees should be in active community service, have successfully mounted and fulfilled a project, and have made an impact in a community may it be in the Philippines or in the country they are currently in.
Regional winners will be awarded in their respective areas, while country winners will be flown to the Philippines to attend the awarding ceremony on June 12, during the country’s Independence Day.
Aside from the honor bestowed through the Bayaning Pilipino medallion, winners will also receive the honor of being in the company of fellow heroes in their homeland.
