Fifth International Pakistan Prestige Awards, organised by founders Ali Malik and Mukhtar Ahmed, scheduled to take place later this year have been postponed till March ’23, it was announced on Thursday. In a press statement Malik said, “We are deeply aggrieved by the colossal loss of lives and property that our nation has been facing these past few months and the great economic set-back we have incurred. The worst is not over yet, and we need to show our solidarity and concentrate all our energies on contending with this huge tragedy.” Ahmed added, “Whatever we do will be like a drop in the ocean, but we all need to join hands in these testing times and play our role in alleviating the sufferings of our fellow citizens.” It may be noted that IPPA, the biggest independent, star-studded Pakistani event taking place internationally, has successfully held four international events in the past – two in the UK, one in Norway and one in Turkey. The first IPPA took place in 2017, celebrating 70 years of Pakistan, and since then there has been no looking back, with a break only during the covid pandemic. Organised by Vision Events International and Lollywood Entertainment, like every year, the PR of IPPA Awards 2022 is being handled by Starlinks PR & Events and the official media partner is HUM network.
