The awarding ceremony was held on Tuesday, December 6, at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in London, England. According to the report, "Reyes’ film bested five other entries in the category from countries namely Lebanon, India, United Arab Emirates, United States, and Singapore."

 

 

The report went on to reveal: "Reyes, along with fellow winners-14-year-old Amna Aslam from Accrington, North West England (Muhammad in Accrington... Inspiring Me for the Action category), and overall winner, 15-year-old Nadim Merrikh from Ontario, Canada (Be The Change You Want to See for the Musical category)-graced the awarding, where their films were also premiered."
