The International Pakistan Prestige Awards (IPPA) has just unveiled the eagerly awaited nominations for its fifth edition, scheduled to take place on October 21, 2023, at Manchester Convention Centre. As in the past, IPPA for this year promises to be a spectacular celebration of Pakistani talent on an international stage. With seventeen nomination categories at IPPA this year, the Pakistani diaspora in the UK is looking forward to meeting a galaxy of Pakistan’s leading celebrities and cheering their favourites on to victory.
The 5th IPPA Awards is also expected to draw top officials from Manchester City. This event is set to mark a historic moment, as it will be the first Pakistani awards ceremony of its scale to grace Manchester City, a testament to the creativity of the Pakistani entertainment industry in the face of global challenges. It may be noted that IPPA has previously successfully been held twice in London, once in Oslo and once in Istanbul.
