The Grand Winner of the 2013 Elan Awards will receive the following: a prestigious designer trophy; P100,000 in cash; another P100,000 to be given to a charity of his choice; and one-year supply of McJIM products. On the other hand, the nine finalists will receive plaques of appreciation and a six-month supply of McJIM products.
“We launched the 2013 Elan Awards to give recognition to Filipino men who are not only successful in their respective fields but are also inspirations for successful,stylish and elegant living in their dress, grooming, accomplishments, and etiquette.
“Through these awards, we hope to encourage more Filipino males to take up a lifestyle that incorporates a sense of style, gentlemanly manners and values, and a drive to succeed,” said McJIM Classic Leather in an official statement.
Nominees will be chosen by the public in a popularity contest conducted through the Mc JIM Classic Leather Official Facebook Fan Page. All Facebook users in the Philippines and overseas are eligible to participate in the poll.
Facebook users may nominate male individuals—whether celebrities or non-celebrities who meet these basic requirements: 1) Must have Filipino lineage; 2) Must be 25 to 35 years of age on the start of the search on May 1, 2013.
Nominees will be judged according to Three Criteria: A) Elegance of Style (Display elegance in their manner of dress and taste; B) Manners and Etiquette (Have refinement in manners and etiquette); and C) Accomplishment (Have notable accomplishments in their fields).
Facebook users may nominate different individuals for each criterion, or nominate one individual for two out of three, or all three criteria. These nominations must be posted on the the Mc JIM Classic Leather Official Facebook Fan Page.
A respected panel of judges will rank and choose the Top Ten Finalists from the computed number of nominees. Once the Top Ten Finalists are announced, voting will begin on May 15, 2013 and end by June 30, 2015.
