PISA’21 AWARD CATEGORIES & NOMINATIONS REVEALED!

Karachi: September 6th, 2021:- Organizers of the 2nd annual Pakistan International Screen Awards (PISA'21) - to take place at the stunning Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, on November 5th, 2021 - have revealed the exciting list of 24 award categories for PISA '21, along with the diverse and eclectic nominees. 

PISA acknowledges the stellar talent of Pakistan's most celebrated artists from Film, TV, Music, Fashion and Digital Content industries and honours outstanding artists on an international platform under the aegis of Mesmerize Events and its CEO and Founder, Mr. Faisal Khan. As 2020 was a stagnant year for Pakistan’s cinema – due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown of nationwide theatres, therefore all film categories have been shelved until the next year. 

This year, with a new and prestigious jury made up of stalwart industry professionals, PISA has developed an array of glittering categories encompassing outstanding performances and achievements of artists who shone bright in 2020. 

NOTE: Winners across all categories will be decided by online voting, with an exception of the PISA Special Awards and the categories specified as Jury Awards.

Voting lines will be open shortly!
