The 20th edition of the Asian Achievers Awards (AAA) ceremony will be on 23 September 2022 in central London. These are the oldest and most prestigious Asian awards in the UK.
Faced with unprecedented adversity during the pandemic, Asian leaders across the UK showed resilience, innovation and foresight to tackle the new economic and societal challenges brought by Covid-19.
South Asians in the UK today occupy leadership positions across a range of fields, including politics, business, civil society and the uniformed services. The AAA will recognise the outstanding work of such individuals in a glittering black tie ceremony with over 500 attendees.
Established in 2000 and held annually since then, the Awards will return in 2022 following the pandemic. The Awards are consistently recognised by the community as the most prestigious and highly respected such Awards in the calendar. Since their inception the Awards have helped raise close to £2 million for charitable causes.
Members of the public submit nominations on the website, and an independent panel of judges creates the shortlist.
