All resident commissioners of Northeast states also participated in the event.

Speaking on the first edition of the awards, founder of Northeast Unsung Heroes Red Carpet Social Awards, Rebecca Changkija Sema said, “On behalf of my entire team, I would like to thank everyone for pouring so much love. People think that since I am from Northeast India so people won’t take me seriously but let me tell you that I have got so much love in Maharashtra. We have 65 nominations among five categories from different walks of life and it has been a tough time for the jury to choose the awardees.”

The award was initiated by Find Studios and SEIL in association with UFO with presenting partner Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) supported by Mumbai Dabbawala Association and institute partner Mumbai University and IIM Shillong. The News Mill was also one of the partners of the event.
