The British Muslim Awards are an annual award ceremony that honours the success and achievements of Britain's Muslim individuals, groups and businesses. It was established in 2013.

Overview[edit]

The British Muslim Awards was founded by Oceanic Consulting.[1] The event honours the success, achievements and contribution of Britain's Muslim individuals, groups and businesses and highlights the significant role Muslims play in contributing to a better Great Britain.[2][3][4][5] There is no category for musicians or actors therefore excluding those people.

It recognises the achievements of Muslim men and women at the forefront of their communities and industries[6][7] celebrating the success of individuals, community groups and businesses, highlighting their achievements[8] and recognising various aspects of British society including business, charity, sport, arts, and culture.[9]

2013 event[edit]

From October 2012, nominations were encouraged through social media.[10] Following 10,000 nominations nationally, the finalists for the inaugural British Muslim Awards were announced.[11][12]

The first national British Muslim Awards event took place on 29 January 2013 at the Sheridan Suite in Manchester. The awards were presented by Tasmina Ahmed Sheikh of Hamilton Burns Solicitors and co-hosted by entrepreneur and philanthropist Zulfi Hussain.[2] The Islamic Bank of Britain was the headline sponsor for the event.[1] The awards ceremony was attended by 600 people.[13]

The event also raised money for Mosaic, the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom. Founded by Prince Charles in 2007, Mosaic's mentoring programmes create opportunities for young people growing up in the most deprived communities.[6][7]
