The Star Guild Awards (previously known as the Apsara Film & Television Producers Guild Award) is an accolade given by the Apsara Producers Guild to recognize excellence in film and television. Originated by filmmaker and scholar Amit Khanna, the Star Guild Awards have been one of the major award events since 2004. The 22-karat gold statuette was sculpted and designed by the jewellery brand Tanishq and was “inspired by the rich heritage of one of India’s most treasured possessions – the Ajanta and Ellora Caves.” Nominations for the awards come from selected members of the guild, with the full membership (around 160) available to vote for the winners. The ballots cast by the guild members are then taken to a common venue for the final counting.
