About Power Brands
Power Brands is not just a global standard of brand excellence and an ode to the glamour and sweat of Individual Brands, but has also over the years emerged as one of the greatest symbols of corporate commitment towards a better world.
On one hand, every year, on the basis of extensive researches in various continents and countries across the world, a list of the Most Recognisable Brands is brought out and only these brands that are pre announced and declared are offered the title of Power Brands. On the other hand ever year, leaders of this exclusive club of Power Brands, come together to join hands pledging their commitment towards a more equal world at forums like the London International Forum of Equality or the Power Brands Bharatiya Manavata Vikas Puraskar (Indian Human Development Awards).
Power Brands, in India has also started the most noble and unique initiative to bring about transparency in Bollywood Awards. The Power Brands Bollywood Film Journalist’s Awards (PB BFJA) is the only award of its kind in Bollywood that recognises really deserving talent on the basis of online open ballot voting by a jury of 15 plus respected film journalists of India. The award not only recognises the winners but also the associate winners in each category.
While the London International Forum for Equality ($5000 for each of the ten plus winners) and Bharatiya Manavata Vikas Puraskar (Rs. 50,000 to 5,00,000 for each of the 10 plus winners) always carried cash prize money, from the Year 2019 even the PB BFJA (between Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 50,000 for all the 56 winners) and the Global Power Brand Iconic Trendsetter Award ($50,000) at the Power Brands Global Summit for Business Trendsetters, USA will also be carrying cash prizes.
Thus, what sets Power Brands aside is it’s genuine commitment to a better world as well genuine commitment to honouring real achievers based upon complete research and transparency – be it in the world of brands, personalities or cinema.
