Today, we’re excited to announce the Top Ten D.C. Nominees! This is a curated list of individuals and companies that we researched over the past six months and were nominated in 9 categories – 1. Community, Public Policy & Governance, 2. Nightlife & Events, 3. Technology & Innovation, 4. Music & Entertainment, 5. Curators, 6. Media & Film, 7. Art, 8. Design and 9. Culinary & Hospitality.
Congratulations to the 240 nominees! Not only do you deserve this, but you also contributed to the society in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday June 19th, we will post the 90 Top Ten D.C. Winners from this nominee list that will have been chosen by our Judges and the Ayoo Editorial Team. Then over the next couple of weeks, you’ll see profiles of some of the winners. The winners will be announced during a Livestream event. Grab your virtual seat to be a part of history in the making. RSVP to attend the event now.
By unveiling the Top Ten D.C. on June 19th and gathering everyone online, we allow for the community as a whole to recognize and celebrate those that have been making major contributions in their industries within the D.C. Metropolitan region. We invite you, your team, friends, family, – and anyone that’s interested or invested in the African Community – to join us at a virtual event that will include a mini virtual conference where we will discuss the roles of the African Diaspora in the Black Community, and how we push forward in the face of racial injustice.
At the June 19th event, we will recognize the 90 winners across the 9 categories. We also have a special announcement that day. We will share the launch of a new digital publication alongside the Top Ten D.C. We can’t wait for you to join us. RSVP to attend the event now.
