Big on Knowledge Sharing, Entrepreneurship, and Creativity

Filipino creators like Arshie Larga (arshielife) have long used TikTok to educate viewers on subjects such as medicine and healthcare, even leveraging his platform to provide free medicines to those in need. In this year’s TikTok Awards PH, Arshie bagged the TikTok Creator of the Year for his consistency and dedication to helping others and sharing impactful stories.

TikTok likewise recognized the relevance of creators who managed to make their business identities prosper by leveraging on the innovative solutions offered by TikTok Shop.

The e-commerce platform of TikTok provided crucial support in building brand awareness and driving success for numerous creators, brands, and businesses. Viy Cortez (viy.cortez), the CEO of Viyline Cosmetics and Viyline Skincare, is a prime example of a TikTok entrepreneur who has engaged audiences, built communities, and delivered exceptional products, which is why she is rightfully regarded as this year’s Popular TikTok Shop Brand Owner.

TikTok has become an avenue for individuals to explore their passions and talents. Fashion influencers such as Jeanette Ong (itsjeanette) have seized the opportunity to reshape the fashion industry through innovative content. By regularly sharing fashion ideas, hacks, and tips that inspire nearly half a million followers, she received the Fashion Creator of the Year award.
