Namma Bengaluru Awards (NBA) has grown in stature considerably since its inception and has become one of the most sought-after awards in Bengaluru. From a Pourakarmika to an Entrepreneur, nominations of truly deserving candidates from different walks of life have grown steadily over the past 11 years. This year, the 12th edition of the Namma Bengaluru Awards (NBA) will be a special edition. The ongoing pandemic and the subsequent lockdown and strict curfews have left the world to a halt. However, the medical community is selflessly performing its duties no matter what challenges these individuals are facing in their own lives. These soldiers of humanity are braving this invisible enemy and putting their own lives at risk to keep us safe. We believe it is important to recognise and applaud these warriors for their service.
The efforts of the brave hearted COVID warriors during these unprecedented times of the coronavirus pandemic have changed the lives of millions. Namma Bengaluru Arogya Yodharu Awards is an attempt to recognise and honour the efforts of those who have held our hands and been by our side in these dark hours.
These awards are the city’s way of saying ‘Thank You’ to its Real Heroes, who work relentlessly towards making Bengaluru a better place to live in.
A jury panel, comprising of eminent and celebrated citizens, review and short-list these nominations. The entire process is monitored and audited by the jury panel. After further deliberation, Jury invites the shortlisted for discussions and the winners are then selected from among the short-listed candidates.
On the night of the event, winners are awarded a coveted trophy and a cash prize to help pursue their dreams. The recognition becomes a launching pad for them to further their endeavors.
