TikTok marked the end of the year with a celebration of community, creativity, and self-expression at its Year on TikTok 2022 event, which was an immersive spectacle held in Lahore. The event was an immersive real-life spectacle, where TikTok celebrated its Pakistani creator community, top videos, and trends of the year with the end-of-year Creator Awards and exciting performances.
TikTok is a place where creators share their talents, creativity, and interests with their community and help create cultural movements and raise awareness around societal issues on the platform. TikTok celebrated some of the most inspiring creators with the TikTok Creator Awards, where winners were announced across 11 categories, including entertainment, lifestyle and sports, as well as the award for the Top Creator of the year. These creators were awarded for their ability to engage with their audiences and create cultural movements that started on TikTok before moving to the physical world, creating a real-world impact.
As the home for entertainment, guests at the #YearOnTikTok event were treated to performances by content creators Tahir Abbas, Hareem Rashid, and Daaniya Kanwal, who used the power of TikTok to make a name for themselves with their talent. The grand finale of the event was a magical performance by music heartthrob Abdul Hannan, whose songs have been some of the most popular tracks of the year on TikTok in Pakistan.
Tarek Abdalla Regional General Manager at TikTok Middle East, Türkiye, Africa, Pakistan, and South Asia, said, “We are filled with pride as we celebrate our community who have been a driving force behind some of the exciting trends of 2022. From sharing innovative ideas to turning their passions into successful careers, the members of our community have shown incredible resilience and creativity.”
