Now in their fourth year, the annual ACTAs are held by the Asian Media Group, publishers of Eastern Eye and Garavi Gujarat weeklies.
Amit Roy, editor-at-large, Eastern Eye and chairman of the ACTA judging panel said: “It is heartening to see the depth of creative talent in the south Asian community and we are delighted to that this year’s winners showcase some of the best of what our community has to offer.
This year’s Eastern Eye Editor’s Special Award was presented to the Aga Khan Centre in King’s Cross, London. Dedicated to the “spread of education, knowledge and exchange of cultural ideas”, the institution’s stated mission is to foster better understanding in a multi-faith world. The centre houses the Aga Khan Foundation, the Aga Khan University and the Institute for Ismaili Studies which promotes a better understanding of Islam and Islamic culture.
