Celebrating the essence of business and culture across our diverse, rich, ethnic minority communities.
MTM Awards is already established as the premier Asian, Black & Ethnic Minorities event in the South West.
Welcoming over 3000 people across communities at the Glittering Gala Evening, over 1000 nominees making it to the nomination short list and over 60,000 voting online since inception in 2012.
MTM Awards is a leading player in promoting & honouring diverse business and community groups. We are renowned for pushing boundaries and offering audiences a world class Glittering Gala Award Evening and nominees an extraordinary experience of a lifetime to showcase their excellence & achievements in business and community work.
MTM Awards were created in 2012 to Honour The Best of South Asian businesses and communities in the South West of England.
In 2014 the awards opened doors to other ethnic communities in the region, this increased participation and diversity for the awards.
2016 saw the awards introduce a National Award for Excellence in Business and Community to include participation of cities other than those in the South West.
We also introduced an International Award for Excellence & Achievement as an incentive for community groups in other countries internationally.
This was the year that the awards gained national momentum with calls across the country to expand the awards to different regions and the capital.
Special Recognitions are awarded to businesses and communities other than the Asian, Black & Ethnic that work closely with these communities.
Now in its sixth year and building on the success of MTM 2016 Awards, we are delighted to be able to continue to offer our stand-out awards night for 2017, celebrating the essence of business and culture across our diverse, rich, ethnic minority communities.
In 2016, Ivory Belongs to Elephants has been our chosen charity, creating awareness on the plight of elephants in Africa especially the East African region.
For the 2017-2018 season MTM Awards are working closer with this cause and have invited the Ivory Belongs to Elephant team to join at the Glittering Gala Evening on Sunday December 17th at the Bristol Marriott hotel.
There are 20 awards spread over six categories up for grabs in 2017.
All six categories are popular and competitive with nominations in the hundreds each season. The two top awards are the Person of the Year award and the Lifetime achievement award. (Please see partnership brochure for details of all awards)
2016 all business awards saw an increase in nominations thanks to MTM Ambassadors across the region who visited many that are not digital conscious and introduced these outlets to the awards, its benefits for business.
This boosted nominations and brought on board newer brands.
The ambassadors are at it again and our social media campaign starts July to encourage participation across the board.
We are expecting a surge in nominations from each if not more of the popular categories. This could exceed the 100 nominee mark per award in most awards.
The awards are not open to big franchise outlets and local shops that have more than one outlet of the same brand can only nominate one branch.
Nominations are open to the public via our website. The 2017 nominations open on July 20th and close on September 20th. The nomination evening is a business networking evening at the Conservatory, Bristol Marriott city hotel.
All nominations are boxed and vetted by the panel and questionnaire sent through by email. Upon completion of the questionnaire those that meet the award criteria are eligible for voting.
Voting begins on September 30th and ends on November 15th with the Press evening taking place on November 29th.
The winners know of their fate at the Glittering Gala Evening on December 17th at the Bristol Marriott hotel when the awards are handed out to winners by celebrity guests and Mayors from different cities.
