TikTok celebrated creators with the TikTok Creator Awards where winners were announced across numerous categories including Creator of the Year and Breakthrough Creator of the Year. These creators were awarded for their ability to engage with their audiences and create cultural movements that started on TikTok before moving to the physical world.
The awards were held at the #ForYouParty, which included an immersive event held at Sound Stage 2, Dubai Studio City and in-app activations. The event, which merged the digital and physical worlds into an real-life TikTok experience was a celebration of the most inspiring creators with the TikTok Creator Awards and the platform’s most popular communities, including #BookTok and #FoodTok.
Tarek Abdalla, regional general manager at TikTok Middle East, Türkiye, Africa, Pakistan and South Asia, said, “We are filled with pride as we celebrate our community who have been a driving force behind some of the exciting trends of 2022. From sharing innovative ideas to turning their passions into successful careers, the members of our community have shown incredible resilience and creativity.”
“It has been truly inspiring to witness how TikTok has enabled everyone to come together and experience joy, connection, and a sense of belonging. We are honored to have been a part of this journey and look forward to seeing what the future holds for our community,” he added.
