Media professionals from across the country gathered at Manchester’s MediaCityUK for the launch of the Asian Media Awards on 25 April 2013. The launch allowed guests to meet members of the judging panel as well as have a look at the categories for the first time. The Awards aim to reward the efforts of members of the Asian Media in helping to galvanise their communities and forging ahead with what sometimes are limited resources. They also look to highlight the ground breaking work of reporters and producers in highlighting issues affecting race relations and human rights.
The Asian Media Awards will take place on Thursday 31 October at the Hilton Deansgate. Before then a finalists launch will be held in London in September 2013. For further information and a full list of categories on the awards you can log on to www.asianmediaawards.com
