MANILA, Philippines - Filipino bloggers from all over the world are invited to participate in the 2011 Pinoy Expats/ OFW Blog Awards (PEBA).

Interested Filipino expats and OFWs are asked to submit blog entries on this year's theme is "Ako'y Magbabalik, Hatid Ko'y Pagbabago" (I Will Return, I Will Bring Change.)

Organizers said the contest will look into how returning Filipino expats and OFWs make use and share "social remittance" or their talents and skills to bring change to their families, communities and country.  Social remittance is defined by PEBA as ideas and practices that are brought from an overseas country to the Philippines.

To qualify for the contest, the blog must be managed by an OFW, Filipino expat or half-Filipino who is living temporarily or permanently in a country other than the Philippines.

The PEBA is also introducing a new blog search called "Any Blogger, Anywhere" for Filipinos, whether based in the Philippines or abroad, who write about different topics such as politics, health well-being, finance and travel.

PEBA is a non-profit, non-stock organization of international Filipino bloggers from different parts of the world.
