The Award event is on August 31st, 2016. The Awards have four designations: Youth Award; GCA Award; Exemplary Award and Lifetime Achievement Award.    

The honorees are spread across the Guyanese Diaspora. They reside in the United States of America, Canada, Guyana, United Kingdom, and Barbados where the recipients display their global, regional and national impact in various sectors. They achieved significant accomplishments in visual and performing arts, social media, literature, government administration, information technology education, community service, aviation, and as cultural enablers. Prominently evident in the dedication of each individual effort is a demonstration of noble features of Guyanese heritage.

Nominations for the Awards are provided by members of the public, anywhere, after an extensive multimedia call for submissions. Honourees are selected by a ten-member selection committee that evaluates each nomination. It considers the annual theme and seven criteria: originality, scope, impact / influence, integration, pioneering spirit, challenges and achievements.
