We can now confirm that the long-awaited #10&Beyond – the MTM Awards 10th anniversary that was due in 2021 will now take place this 2022. Confirming this to the team, MTM Awards CEO Junior Sheikh says, ” Plans are well underway for the Big Night – The MTM Glittering Gala Award Evening with a host of diverse entertainment, exquisite dining, award presentations by celebrity guests plus an After-Party.”

Award ceremonies are a celebration of excellence and achievement, so it’s important to have an exciting, entertaining, upbeat, and well-attended evening, we have all that awaits you and much more as this is our 10th Anniversary. The awards were first presented in 2012, and winners receive a hand-crafted Bristol Blue Flame. In this 10th anniversary celebration, there are 23 awards spread over 7 categories up for grabs. The response to the nominations has been overwhelming as always and the nominee voting will open soon.

MTM Awards were founded in 2012 as  MTM South-West Asian Awards. In 2014 they were re-named the MTM Asian & Ethnic Minority Awards and in the following year to the MTM  Asian, Black & Ethnic Awards. Many changes have been made through the years to give opportunities not only to the nominees but performing grassroots artists, suppliers, and volunteers. The awards have become more inclusive and opened doors to the wider ethnic communities in the South West, the UK, and countries across international waters.

2021 is the 10th anniversary of the MTM Awards and to celebrate this milestone, the theme of MTM Awards 2021 is #thegreencarpet. The usual red carpet will be replaced with a green carpet in respect to the nominees that champion the environment, something Bristol is well known for. We also launched projects to “Give Back To Communities”

  • Period Poverty Action Project by MTM – Creating awareness, supporting communities & providing sanitary towels to girls from deprived communities.
  • The Angel Educational Trust – to support students from deprived communities in countries where specialised education schools are unaffordable to these families.

Both the projects are well into a year of existence and we look to our supporters and sponsors for your support.

We are proud to be the pioneers in celebrating the essence of business and culture across our rich diverse ethnic communities; where the talent and achievements of the contenders deserve to be recognised and celebrated. After nine years of 172 awards winners, 78 Special Recognition honours, 4750  welcomes, 6350 nominees, and over 178,000 votes cast since the inaugural awards we’ve seen a remarkable increase in participation, an immense interest from diverse communities vying for this prestigious award since 2012.

Partnering with the MTM Awards gives you more than a tick in the box for your corporate social responsibility; this is an opportunity for your company to open doors for diverse communities at a time when it would be easier to close them. MTM Awards will offer partners unrivaled branding and sponsorship opportunities, including months of profile campaign through advertising and online coverage and at the glittering gala award evening ceremony.


Tickets to the MTM 10th Anniversary will be available from  Sunday, February 13th at:  https://www.mtmawards.co.uk/buy-now/
