Asian Media Awards @asianmediaaward It is with a heavy heart and with much sadness that we announce the death of our co-founder Umbreen Ali, aged 45.

A statement was released by the organisation:

‘Everyone who ever met Umbreen will forever remember a person who was humble, deeply modest, honest and sincere in all her dealings.

It was an ethos on which she helped to launch this event and we do hope that we have in some way to have relayed these qualities to others.

She helped to establish the Asian Media Awards in 2013 and hosted every one of our Shortlist Announcements and launch events.

She was also the first point of call for every finalist, winner and guest to the events for the past eight years.

A talented journalist, columnist and feature writer Umbreen will also be remembered for assisting a number of community groups and charities who would not normally have been able to avail to such services.’

Tributes have poured in from celebs in the community who are all saddened and shocked by the loss.
