New York, NY: With the number of Indians and Indian Americans reaching the pinnacles of success globally rising every day, Times Now recently announced the launch of the third edition of the “Times Now ICICI Bank NRI of the Year Awards” to celebrate their achievements.
Beginning in October 2015, Times Now and ICICI Bank invited global Indians in the fields of entrepreneurship, philanthropy, academics and business professionals to nominate themselves or someone they know for the awards, at the newly-redesigned website, www.nrioftheyear.com.
The awards are open to any NRI, OC or a PIO who has stayed in the U.S., Canada, UK, UAE, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand and Singapore for a stipulated amount of time and has made a mark in his/her respective field.
In addition to the categories there are three distinct awards: India’s Global Icon, Popular choice and The Special Jury Award, according to a press release. The entire process of the awards right from the nominations to choosing the winners will have a five-tier evaluation process managed by EY.
The last two editions of the awards have garnered a tremendous response and have witnessed an amazing turnout, added the release. Celebrities, business professionals and entrepreneurs from all walks of life have graced the event before.
From Amitabh Bachchan winning the Global Indian Icon of the Year in the first season to Shah Rukh Khan wining in the second, there has been no dearth of prominent faces coming together for such a noble cause hosted by Times Now and ICICI Bank, the release said.
“With the launch of the third season, Times Now and ICICI Bank aim to take the initiative a notch higher.
