Tonight we are saluting the achievers. To choose the stalwarts of this dynamic industry was not an easy job. To ensure that the awards are unbiased, we have adopted an online voting system. This gives the industry an opportunity to create the award, choose and even nominate and they can vote for themselves too. The nominations were received from 46 categories and three new categories were added by the industry. I am overwhelmed to see a whopping 1,85,000 votes from all over the world including the UK, US and Australia to name a few countries.”
