The bell has rung and preparations for the 19th Asian Achievers Awards have begun. Like each year, we have nine categories that will be represented by nominees pitched by you. We have been blown away by your remarkable responses in the past, and we pride ourselves on this initiative.
However, AAA holds a more special place in our hearts with its theme this year- Inclusivity. Resonating with the current global wave, the theme could not get any better or similar to how we wish to represent ourselves.
At ABPL, we know no race, gender, or sexual orientation. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam: The world is a family, and we want to celebrate each and every one of you. Which is why, this year, we urge all of you to nominate at least one individual of the Pride community for each category. One of Britain's premier Asian awards, AAA recognises the outstanding work of individuals from across all areas within the Asian community.
One of our 8 categories is Woman of the Year. It exclusively cheers for the fairer and stronger sex. We also have the Uniformed and Civil Services category for individuals with outstanding achievements in the field or contribution to the community through any of the services. AAA has the Community Service category for those who have contributed immensely to the society. One of the most accredited categories is the Sports Personality of the Year category, which is one of our more popular award slots. Last year too, the awards celebrated outstanding British Asian talent across arts & media, sports, community service, uniformed services and business. The winners were honoured in a glamorous event held at Grosvenor House. Those who took awards home include multimillionaire, hotelier, trustee of the Balaji Temple in Birmingham and Chairman of the Bhartiya Vidhya Bhavan, Joginder Sanger, Atul Lakhani, CEO of multi-award winning catering and event management specialists Sanjay Foods, and renowned property developer and philanthropist Vraj Pankhania.
If you know an exceptional, stellar individual excelling in their field, let us know and we will present them to our panel of judges. We invite not only our subscribers and readers, but also the wider community to nominate achievers for various categories of the awards.
