Northwest Asian Weekly’s Visionary Awards Gala is an annual awards dinner that celebrates Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Americans in the Greater Seattle Area who have not only exemplified greatness in their work but who are also forward-thinking innovators. In short, we celebrate visionaries.
Each year, our event is themed. This year, the theme is Tech Visionaries.
Our honorees are chosen through a nomination process — esteemed members of local communities offer up the names of people they think are deserving of this award. A planning committee takes the nominations into consideration and ultimately choose the honorees.
It’s important to us that our event is for our community and that it reflects our community. We work with local API businesses owners — from venue space, food, award plaques, and sponsors — to make this gala successful.
Note: This is not a fundraising event.
