Pinoy Expats-OFW Blog Awards or PEBA, Inc. is the organization that honors the best and inspiring Expatriates and Overseas Filipino Workers Blogs around the world.


PEBA was launched on July 1, 2008 to recognize the growing popularity of blogging among Filipino expatriates and OFW. Being expatriate bloggers ourselves, we’ve witnessed how expatriates artistically narrate their sob stories, stories of trials, opinionated posts about the Philippine politics, etc in their blogs. Thus we thought of recognizing their efforts – not with monetary reward but an award of some sort.

About PEBA

The top 10 Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog AWARD or PEBA is a search contest aimed to recognize and honor the exemplary work of blogging Pinoy Expats/OFW. PEBA wishes to present their blog work and bring their creative talents to light. We want to highlight the inspiring blogs of expatriates and learn from their lessons, their stories, and their work normally contained in their blogs.

Considered as "Bagong Bayani" (new heroes), we believe we ought to hear their voices and amplify it for the world to hear.


PEBA’s initial rule is very simple. We asked the blogging community to nominate their favorite blogs; we select the top 10 from various locations around the world and honor the winners with award badges and widgets.
