This year, the UK audience will be swelled by the over 2.5 million curry lovers with the help of our partners and associates. It will be first time ever record breaking number of nominations expected to be received. The British Curry Awards is the pioneer in this industry and even our Prime Minister David Cameron dubbed the ‘Curry Oscars’ and ‘uplifting & “inspiring evening the British Curry Awards really is’ in his video message and when he attended the awards dinner in 2009 remained the gold standard, and the biggest night of the year for the near 100,000 people involved in the industry.Alongside the usual categories, there will be one new one this year - Best Delivery Restaurant/Takeaway. This will be open to restaurants that are takeaways only and also those restaurants that offer a home delivery service. This category will be judged on a nation-wide basis. There will also be the usual high level guests and presenters and a quality programme of entertainment.

The last few months have drawn a lot of attention to attacks on Indians in Australia whicjh appear to be racially driven. Many students have been badly hurt and a few have even died. Mia Northrop, a resident of Melbourne has initiated an idea to stop the spreading of the violence through the promotion of great Indian food. Her idea is to get the people of Melbourne to dine at local Indian restaurants to show their solidarity to the local Indian community.
The event is being scheduled for Wednesday February 24, 2010.
Below is her idea.
Vindaloo Against Violence gives ordinary Melburnians a peaceful, easy way to:
- express their anger and disappointment that racially motivated violence is occurring in their city
- embrace and show solidarity with the local Indian community
- mount a show of force against the perpetrators of violence.
She initiated this event because she wanted her voice to be heard on this issue but didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know how.
LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s signal to the Indian media and other international observers that everyday Australians do not accept racially motivated violence and racism.
LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also shift the local media, government and law enforcement focus from preventative measures Indians should take to protect themselves to:
- identifying the root causes and typical perpetrators of racially motivated violence
- finding ways to diffuse the criminal behaviour.
The event is not supporting any particular business interests and this initiative receives no government, commercial, organisation, union, community, religious or political party funding.
The idea is simply for everyday people to come together to support their immigrant communities in a very Melbourne way: through great food.
