Setting up yet another milestone in a groundbreaking initiative HUM Network Ltd. is proud to announce its first ever digital award show in Pakistan, KASHMIR HUM Social Media Awards 2020 Powered by Facebook, the largest internationally recognized social media platform.
It is the first digitally based award show in Pakistan that has Facebook under its banner, making it distinguished and authentic in its true sense by recognizing and encouraging deserving individuals working in the fields of music, entertainment, fashion, sports and content creation who have gained popularity over the years and have made their mark digitally.
Social media over the recent years has created as we have witnessed, a massive influx towards communication by engaging, motivating and inspiring global audiences on a larger scale through its content.
The criteria of these awards and selection of nominees is based purely on their social media presence and their achievements across all platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and unique blogs in the entertainment genre etc.
The nomination list is finalized purely on the basis of their social media followers/subscribers, interaction rate and content created between July 2019 to June 2020, using Facebook Authentic Tool. The nominees will be put up for audience voting via website, giving the audiences locally and globally the opportunity to vote for their favourite stars. The voting lines will open from September 10 till September 22, 2020.
Speaking on the occasion Sultana Siddiqui, President HUM Network said, “Social media has the power to engage and motivate on a global scale. It is an appropriate time that we recognize and celebrate all the inspiring individuals working in different fields of entertainment genre, who have proved their mettle digitally with years of hard work and dedication. I am very proud of this initiative as this is the first time that a TV channel in Pakistan has collaborated with Facebook to recognize the potential of social media. This event will be a stepping stone in encouraging and inspiring young and emerging content creators to utilize their platforms and their abilities to create meaningful and impactful content.”
“It is exciting to see how rapidly Pakistan’s digital landscape has evolved over the past few years, and we are looking forward to presenting the country’s first-ever social media awards with HUM.
