“It’s been a game changer for many creators, opening doors that would traditionally have been shut without a record deal, production house or traditional stage. Many of TikTok’s top creators have gone on to have international success, including LA born pop star, Leah Kate, who will perform live on the night.”
Three awards will be handed out on the night: TikTok Video of the Year, TikTok For Good, and TikTok Creator of the Year, the one everyone wants to win. The latter will be given to a creator who possesses the creativity, innovation, and diversity that make one stand out on the platform.
