More than 300 representatives of honored organizations and individuals gathered to celebrate the winners of the 11th annual Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards at a gala on Friday, May 24 at the Shangri-La The Fort Hotel in Manila, the Philippines.

For those unable to attend, the ceremony was streamed live on Vimeo. You can watch the full ceremony replay on our site and our YouTube channel.

More than 1,000 nominations were submitted to the 2024 competition by organizations and individuals. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners in the various categories were announced in April, as selected by the ratings of more than 200 professionals worldwide. Winners of five Grand ("best of show") trophies also were announced in April, while eight winners of People's Choice Stevie Awards, chosen in a worldwide public vote, were announced earlier in May.

To kick-off festivities, gala attendees first enjoyed a formal reception at the hotel to network and forge new business relationships with other Stevie-winning professionals and leaders, followed by a dinner and the awards presentations.

Each organization was announced once during the presentations. A short video about the winning organization produced by the Stevie Awards was played, followed by the winners’ acceptance speech on stage. After receiving their award(s) on stage, winners had the opportunity to be interviewed on the red carpet area outside the event room, where they were asked two questions:

  • "What does winning a Stevie Award mean for your organization?" 
  • "How will winning a Stevie Award help your organization?" 

Acceptance speeches and interview clips will be available on the Stevie Awards YouTube channel.
