PTC Punjabi Film Awards are a form of recognition of both the progress of Punjabi cinema as a whole and for the individual movies, actors, directors and all those involved.  These are all positive steps for Punjabi Cinema and one hopes for bigger and better things to come.

The Process

For a movie to be included in the nominations, the directors have to officially submit a nomination for each of the categories.  For some reason, Babbu Mann gave this a miss in the last year’s awards and hence his movie did not feature in the awards.  The nominees are then finalized by a panel made up of prominent personalities from the Punjabi Film Industry.   The final decision is taken after voting on the website, through SMSes, and the recommendations of the panel.

Voting

People can vote online and through their cellphones via SMS.   The voting has been closed.
