MTM Awards #10 & Beyond! more...

 MTM Awards


Making A Difference!

The MTM Awards, initiated in 2012 by Mast The Magazine in the South West of England, serve as a distinctive platform to honor and celebrate the accomplishments in business and culture within diverse ethnic communities. Notably, these awards are the first of their kind in the UK and hold a special significance for the communities they represent.

The awards ceremony, a grand event held at the Bristol Marriott Hotel (now Delta Marriott Hotel) in Bristol city center since 2014, is a highlight every November-December. The unique custom-made hand-crafted Bristol Blue Flame is the coveted prize that winners receive, symbolizing their excellence and contribution.

As of the 2023 awards, there are 5 categories, making a total of 15 awards, and an additional 5 Special Recognitions presented to communities beyond the Asian, black, and ethnic groups. The introduction of the Environmental Excellence Award in 2020, falling under the Open Category alongside National & International awards, reflects the commitment to acknowledging contributions in environmental sustainability.

To be eligible for an MTM Award, nominees must have made a significant difference between January 1 and midnight of the Glittering Gala Award Evening. Nominations are officially submitted through the MTM Awards online nomination form.

The MTM Awards panel, composed of specialists in respective categories, plays a crucial role in the selection process. They shortlist nominees based on the MTM Awards Questionnaire and online voting. The final winners are then selected by the full panel after thorough verification and counting of the votes. The names of the winners are revealed exclusively at the Glittering Gala Award Evening, adding an element of suspense and excitement to the event.

Winning an MTM Award is more than just a recognition; it brings prestige and significant boosts to the success of the winners. Over the years, the awards have evolved to become more inclusive, supporting grassroots artists, suppliers, and volunteers, while actively promoting sustainability among all participants.

As the MTM Awards Season 12 unfolds, it’s evident that the initiative has experienced remarkable growth, with 193 award winners, 91 Special Recognition honors, 5,450 welcomes, 8,350 nominees, and over 227,500 votes cast since their inception in 2012. The awards continue to play a crucial role in celebrating the talent and achievements of contenders from diverse communities, contributing to a more inclusive and vibrant cultural landscape.
