The Aliw Awards Foundation has no website, but it does have a Wikipedia entry.

Its 21st installment (2008) was panned for its strange nomination eligibility period by Gibbs Cadiz (read about it here).

Further Googling reveals that there seems to have never been any announcements for acceptance of nominations.  The announcement below to accept nominations for its 24th installment (2011) might be the first time it has done so.

The announcement below is a mix of information I Googled.  Their media release that has been picked-up by different publications does not indicate a deadline for submission of nominations nor any contact numbers, but they did indicate a mailing address and an email address.

(Using the venue of this year's awarding ceremonies as a clue, I have a feeling that I think I know which production and which roles will win the theater-related awards this year, kekeke. Let's see if I will be correct.)
