The awards ceremony which is the first of its kind, aims to promote the regional digital media entertainment industry, discover young and creative and talents and provide a platform for them to shine and showcase their creativity and ideas.
Prodigee Media founder and CEO Fred Chong believed that now is the time for the region’s online content producers to get recognition for their accomplishments and achievements by having its own digital awards.
“With their belief that it’s time for something like this, hopefully this will serve as a catalyst Asian content producers to go beyond their own shores and expand throughout the region and the world,” said Chong in a statement.
The event was co-hosted by Malaysia’s talented radio DJ and YouTuber, Jin Lim – famously known as Jinnyboy, and Hong Kong singer Kandy Wong who is known for her stage name, “Tong Mui” (糖妹).
