Heroes of media, business and community were honoured at an awards ceremony held by one of the UK’s most exciting new multimedia publications.
Coinciding with the close of Black History Month, The Nubian Times’ Media Business and Community (MBC) Awards saw award winners rubbing shoulders with familiar faces from music and television at The Hilton Hotel, Manchester on October 26.
In a new twist on red carpet events The Nubian Times invited stars to strut their stuff on a black carpet as it celebrated its first birthday with the likes of Granada Reports’ Tony Morris, MOBO winner Esco Williams, X Factor’s Eli Cripps and a host of other stars.
Blacka Hire provided sound, stage, lighting and production at the bash where Kingston-based media professional Andre Lowe took the award for best journalist, whilst Granada’s Tony Morris was named best presenter.
In the community category, Melissa Drummond accepted business of the year award on behalf of Cliché Model Management.
In the community category Britain’s second oldest woman at 107, Minetta Webb, was honoured with a lifetime achievement award.
Aimed at the black, minority and ethnic (BME) communities of Leeds, Liverpool, London, Huddersfield, Bradford and Birmingham, The Nubian Times is the largest and fastest growing BME multimedia publication in the Northwest, with a readership drawn from all members of the wider community.
The newspaper enjoys a printed circulation of 50,000 delivered to doorsteps and business across Manchester and the UK.
