The Tribute Award was given to Iloilo Kpop Organization founder, and Core Group member, Iveca Cale Ignacio who is also the leader of KIMSSHI. For her having people to put up the organization with her, and still continues to grow, experiencing failures that lead to achievements, and inspiring co-KPOP fanatics telling how great it is to be a KPOP fan are the reasons for her taking the award as what a video presentation about her stated.
Now here are the top three awards given during that night:

The night was filled with laughter, appreciation and tears of joy. Everyone deserves a recognition even those who didn’t win the awards. All IKO cover artists are performers who have something good and interesting to show.
