Event management company QBiz Events and Press 4 (P4) news portal, have together launched Jwala 2017 awards to celebrate the achievements of Indian women in Qatar who have led inspirational lives.
Eight women would be selected for the awards by a panel of judges that will include media personalities, dignitaries and prominent Indian community members in Qatar. The nominees for the awards will be announced during the first week of April while the winners will be announced during an awards ceremony towards the end of April.
Jwala 2017 aims to recognise and award Indian women who have showcased their individualities in different fields like education, business, art, literature, culture, sports etc and have achieved success through their own efforts.
The awards would give special consideration to women who have led inspirational lives, aided charitable causes or have supported and made a difference in the Indian community in Qatar or have been a great role model to others. It was announced as part of a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative by Qbiz events and will now be an annual event.
Qbiz Events Operations Director Nishad Guruvayoor said:
The Jwala 2017 awards is an ideal way of thanking them for their acts of kindness and encouraging others through their lives. This is our first attempt at conducting such an event but we hope to make it an annual event and next year, we will ensure that we announce the award winners on International Women’s Day.’
