Even before we stepped into the event arena of Exhibit Magazine‘s Top 100 Digital Influencer Awards, I knew I was in for a treat considering a guest list that boasted every influencer imaginable—a guest list that I was privy to thanks to the fact that MissMalini Entertainment was the digital partner and social media voice of #InfluencEX19. Anyhow, I was pumped! Seeing all our favourite social media influencers in the same room together being their glam selves was such fun, but more so because it was like an up close and personal look at some of the characters that have become as famous as the actual people themselves. For instance, Mallika Dua cracked us up during her acceptance speech saying,
I have two words. ‘Scuze and Me.
I mean LOL, amirite? But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start from the beginning so it’ll be like you, dear reader, feel like you haven’t missed a thing.
As India’s leading Lifestyle and Technology magazine, Exhibit’s event was the talk of the town. Hosted by comedian, Nitinn R Miranni, #InfluencEX19 saw a lot of popular and well-known faces—Sejal Kumar, Prajakta Koli, RJ Malishka, Harsh Beniwal, and Angry Prash all attended this event. And of course, our boss lady, Malini Agarwal who won the Woman Influencer of the Year, as well!
The 10 categories with 10 winners each were: Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle, Travel, Food, Social Influencers, Automobiles, Technology, Entertainer, Social Media Personality. The top 100 winners were shortlisted from a long list of over 1000…Isn’t that something? Let’s have a look at some of these winners!

Social media has given me so much (almost everything I have. almost) I am able to live my best life and share the journey with you guys as I proceed. Despite the negativity, its shown me we’re all human and we’re all struggling through something. Its given me a platform to voice my thoughts unfiltered. Its given me a platform where I can hear other thoughts unfiltered. I wouldn’t be here doing everything I do if it weren’t for it. And I think recognition for something as new and trivial as it feels like an accomplishment in itself. Here’s to everyone who won and everyone who didn’t. Here’s to everyone who makes an active effort in bettering themselves and what they do. Here’s to everyone whose efforts may or may not be going unnoticed. Here’s to you for being you. Thanks @exhibitmagazine
