Asian Achievers Awards nominations deadline approaches

BizAsia Correspondent



The nominations deadline for the Asian Achievers Awards is approaching on 6th July.

The Asian Achievers Awards continue to recognise the outstanding work of such individuals within the South Asian community.

This year’s Awards will take place on Friday 15th September 2023 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

Last year, the Awards paid tribute to Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, with Dame Arlene Foster DBE PC, former First Minister of Northern Ireland, leading the tribute with a one-minute silence.

Now in their 21st year, the Asian Achievers Awards are recognised as the most prestigious and longstanding celebration of the leading figures of the UK’s South Asian community and their achievements, initiated by public nominations.

Former Prime Minister Liz Truss said: “This event is always a fantastic reminder of the tremendous contribution that the British Asian diaspora have made to the United Kingdom, and I am pleased to celebrate that alongside you.”

Leader of the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer said: “British Asians are a driving force behind the much of the social, cultural and economic innovation we see in Britain today. You represent so many of the values that help our communities thrive – inclusiveness, hard work and ambition to name a few.”

In the last edition, more than 500 nominations were received, from which the judges shortlisted four per category, evenly divided between male and female candidates.

Members of the public can nominate change-makers in the community they deem worth via the awards website.
