At the awarding event, Heart expressed her gratitude for Cosmo for creating a platform that bring women together.

"I just want to say thank you so much for Cosmo for creating this beautiful platform, this beautiful stage where we can really share what we're passionate about and create awareness on something we love," she said.

Meanwhile, Solenn has been recognized as "The Visionary" for bringing out "the beauty and struggles of Filipinos" on her artworks during her first major exhibit.

"Through her travels around the country, she draws inspiration from local culture to show that there are many reasons we should be proud to be Pinoy," Cosmo wrote in the caption of their post.



Upon receiving her award, Solenn thanked Cosmo and said it was the first award she received for her art.

"I want to thank Cosmopolitan for recognizing the stories I tell through my art this is the first award I get for my art actually so I'm very thankful," she said.
