“Creators are at the beating heart of TikTok, and it’s wonderful to be able to showcase the incredible talent that makes up our community. TikTok For You Fest allows us to bring together creators, partners and media from across ANZ to toast to another great year, and the atmosphere in the room was fantastic! Congratulations to all of the award winners, we can’t wait to see what you do next!”

Simon Bates, director of content programming at TikTok Australia and New Zealand added:

“TikTok For You Fest is our favourite night of the year as we celebrate our talented, distinctive and diverse creators on a national stage. In 2022, we laughed at new memes, saw viral songs catapult from on-platform to national radio, and propelled new talent onto a global stage, truly shaping pop culture as we know it here in Australia. Congratulations to all our winners and award nominees. I can’t wait to see what next year holds!”.
