The Bulawan Awards is an annual product design and competition which recognizes outstanding products by the members of the Association of Negros Producers (ANP).

To provide an incentive for its members and to encourage them toward more ingenuity, creativity and commitment to product excellence, ANP established the annual Bulawan (Golden) Awards.

Through this incentive, members engage in product innovation and packaging or development of new designs. Recognition is given on a per industry category: Food; Garments and Fashion; Gifts, Toys and Housewares; and Furniture and Furnishings; Natural & Organics.

The Bulawan Awards is a much awaited event every year since the event showcases products developed by ANP members in preparation for the Negros Trade Fair. This will be a sneak preview of the world class products designed and manufactured by Negrenses to be exhibited and sold at the upcoming 30th Negros Trade Fair "Truly Negros", to be held at Glorietta Mall in Makati City, September 16-20, 2015.

Beginnings and History…
a success story on self-reliance…

ANP is born of an ironically sweet crisis, a historical landmark of great distress. The fateful fall of the sugar industry in the 1980s where the world sugar prices plummeted and government took control of sugar trading crippled the economy of Negros in a major life-changing, lifestyle-denting and peace-shattering way. Instead of succumbing to the tragic fate of the monocrop industry that the whole community was dependent on, fifteen Negrense women summoned prayers and their natural entrepreneurial flair to organize the House of Negros Foundation. The foundation, then based in Manila where the women were, paved the way for the founding of a non-stock, non-profit and non-political organization composed of professionals, entrepreneurs and housewives.

The Association of Negros Producers, as we know it now, then contributed extensively in alleviating the plight of more than 150,000 displaced workers in an awful time that saw 84 percent of Negrenses living below the poverty line and 60 percent of their children languishing in malnutrition. Coming from seminars in Manila on starting a kitchen or backyard business with certain crafts and skills, the women shared their knowledge with wives of farm workers. The singular determination to create just one more job brought this stalwart association to where it is now, an established beacon of hope.

In time for the 30th Negros Trade Fair, the trade fair website is now mobile-ready and very much viewable on mobile devices.  This comes in perfect timing as more internet users access the web through a mobile device as opposed to a desktop personal computer or laptop.

The new Negros Trade Fair website is powered by Nextmedia Advertising and Communications, Inc., based in Makati City.
