Frequently Asked Questions

What does the trophy represent?2019-10-25T05:32:17+00:00

Lacquerware has been used in part of the trophy as it is one of the Myanmar products that is recognized by the world. We decided to use it for this year’s trophies as we believe lacquer is a unique representation of Myanmar’s Pride.

When is the award event happening?2019-10-19T11:02:26+00:00

The award will take place in Yangon in February 2020, after all the votes are tallied.  We will announce that date in the upcoming month.

Why did MPA pledge to make a donation per vote to an organization?2019-10-25T04:22:42+00:00

Myanmar’s Pride Awards partnered with a  foundation to invest in the future of Myanmar pride and express its commitment to the platform vision.

If MPA doesn’t reach 1 Million votes does the charity still get the donation?

MPA made a pledge to donate 10 kyats per vote.  The more votes we get, the bigger the donation that the foundation  will receive. The goal is to reach 1 million votes so MPA together with the public, can recognize the best of Myanmar while giving back to the community. Even if the goal (1 million votes) wasn’t met, MPA will shoulder the unmet funds and continue to donate 10 million kyats.

Was MPA named POM last year? Why did the awards change the name?2019-10-19T10:56:40+00:00

Last year, we worked on the Pride of Myanmar awards with the agency, Pastel. We conceptualized it together, the title was registered by them and commissioned by Grand Royal SRW. Later we found out that other corporations used the title as well, hence we decided to change the name of the award platform and this year Mango Advertising Co., Ltd won the pitch for the project.
