Spearheaded by MyGov, the National Creators Award aims to bring a community of creators, leaders and government on one platform to spur a social revolution by recognizing and boosting digital creators who are making an impact.
Digital creators are the new storytellers who are actively driving social impact, promoting local culture, and boosting tourism in the nation. Finally, the Government is also recognising the impact of content creators and amplifying the influence of digital media in today’s time.
