Deets: The Asian Awards were born out of a simple vision; to create an event which would honour only the very highest levels of achievement from within the Worldwide Asian community; to create one of the most important events of its kind ever to be staged. A pioneering, unique and prestigious event, The Asian Awards is the only event that pays tribute to pan-Asian success across all walks of life; emphasising inspiring achievements and highlighting inspirational role models in the fields of business, sport, entertainment, philanthropy and popular arts and culture.
The 6th Annual Asian Awards will be hosted by Alastair McGowan.
Previous winners have included Sir Ben Kingsley, Jackie Chan, Sachin Tendulkar, Freddie Mercury, AR Rahman, Amitabh Bachchan, Zayn Malik, Nicole Scherzinger, Norah Jones, Gok Wan, Ravi Shankar, Anupham Kher, George Alagiah, Jack Ma, Ratan Tata, Vijay Mallya, Amir Khan, Russell Peters, Bruce Lee and Asha Bhosle.
The popularity and influence of The Asian Awards is growing year on year. In 2015, The Asian Awards trended worldwide at number one on Twitter and broke several Indian Twitter records. Previous honourees have included legends like Asha Bhosle, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Norah Jones and pop superstar Zayn Malik.
The funds raised at the 6th Asian Awards will go toward Global Citizen, building and growing the online movement that will end extreme poverty by 2030. Global Citizen is not just another charity. It is a unique platform to unite and amplify the voices of millions, to shift the decisions and systems that trap people in global systems of poverty.
