The Sikh Awards aims to honor and celebrate the achievements of the Sikh community,
Dubai (4th Mar, 2020): In a first, Dubai has hosted The 10th Annual Sikh Awards which recognizes and celebrates the achievements of individuals and organizations on a global level.
The awards were initiated in response to public demand in 2010 and have since been held in London, Delhi, Toronto and Nairobi, respectively.
Recognition is given to the special contributions made by Sikhs in the fields of business, sport, charity, media, entertainment, education, selfless voluntary service, lifetime achievement and the special recognition award, which is given to someone from another faith promoting multiculturalism.
The Sikh Awards have continued to grow from strength to strength each year, honouring excellence throughout the world. The event was organized by UK-based global organization ‘The Sikh Group’ in partnership with UAE’s ‘Plan b Group’ at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel on February 21, 2020.
Navdeep Singh, founder of The Sikh Group, which consists of The Sikh Directory, The Sikh 100, The Sikh Charity, and The Sikh Awards, said The Sikh Awards have continued to grow, honoring excellence since its inception in 2010.
The winners are selected from across the globe, by an independent judging panel.
This multi-cultural global event aims to honor and celebrate the enormous achievements of the Sikh community, who continue to contribute immensely to the social, cultural and economic fabric of today’s global village. We are celebrating two major anniversaries, Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 500th birth anniversary and our 10th anniversary.
Harmeek Singh, founder of ‘Plan b Group’, said the association with The Sikh Group for The Sikh Awards is an ideal platform under the year of tolerance and a true representation of UAE and humanity. We are delighted to join hands for the 10th edition of Sikh awards.
