  • Imran

    why propakistani didnt win any award?

    • admin

      We were nominated in “blog and forum” category, which was ultimately not included in award list. Reason: Just came know that all categories were supposed to have at least three contestants to be judged.

      We wonder, how come they couldn’t manage to get at least three blogs enlisted there.

      • Saleem

        is redmondpie a pakistani blogger?

        • admin

          yes

          • Saleem

  • bushra

    Good to see companies like Ufone & Mobilink are paying due attention to their web portals & making them more attractive by offering cool promotions & interactive by linking them to social networking sites, plus the fact that these efforts are being appreciated through such awards.

    However minuscule the web traffic may be in Pakistan (in comparison to cellular traffic) web portals truly represent face of a company. good show!!!
