The Lux Style Awards is the largest award ceremony held annually in Pakistan since 2002.[1] The awards celebrate "style" in the Pakistani entertainment industry.[2] Around 30 awards are given annually.[1] The ceremony is the oldest and the most prominent film event dedicated to Pakistani television, fashion and film industry in Pakistan. The awards are voted on by both the public and a committee of experts.[3]

As one of the nation's premier award show events, the Lux Style Awards have been dubbed "Pakistan's Oscars"[1][4] and described as "the awards ceremony in Pakistan".[5]

The first awards were presented in 2002 at the Expo Centre in Karachi, Pakistan. Since 2002 the event has expanded from a one-night event to a three-day celebration, hosting various events and activities relating to the Pakistan film industry.
