Countering Misinformation and Elevating "Truth-Writers", the Golden Door Presents the World's First-Ever International Writers' Awards for Truth and Integrity as a 3-Day Virtual Conference
The 5th of Sept 2020 will be the Day of the Truth-Writers. “Golden Door” – the World’s first International Writers’ Awards for Truth and Integrity for Printed Literature and Digital Content will be inaugurated on this date. Founded by veteran Technologist, Futurist and Bestselling Author from Singapore, Tahira Amir Khan. It was first endorsed by Singapore’s Ambassador-at-large Professor Tommy Koh. The Guest of Honour will be American Speaker Hall of Fame, Jim Cathcart.

Singapore – As corruption and distorted agendas inflict the world with another level of misinformation, a distinguished group of internationally acclaimed writers, speakers, academia, and government leaders from around the world are coming together to judge an inaugural awards ceremony for “truth and integrity.” First endorsed by Singapore’s Ambassador-at-large Professor Tommy Koh, this landmark virtual convention will take place from September 5 – 7, 2020 and feature over 40 Truth-Writers from across 5 continents delivering more than 24 talks, workshops & panels.

Today with fake news and corrupt journalism the fourth estate has mostly become the mouthpiece for people in government and business who are doing wrong. The only way to counter this is to bring together people who stand up and speak out for truth, no matter the consequences.” ~ Jerry Almeida, judge for the Golden Door-REX Karmaveer Medal.

Welcoming winners from across the globe for the ‘Golden Door’, symbolic as the ‘Golden Door of Truth’, this award aims to recognise non-fiction writers as agents of truth and integrity. 

Day One will be graced “virtually” by Former Member of the Singapore Parliament, Zainul Abidin Rasheed, with the Guest of Honour, Jim Cathcart, Speaker Hall of Fame and Author of 20 books. The virtual audience will be entertained through a special preview of Murray Watts’ upcoming play “African Snow,” performed by actor Israel Oyelumade. 

Day Two is filled with panel discussions and workshops to equip the Truth-Writers and Truth-Creators and to prepare them to be successful. The final day will bring together an eclectic mix of presentations from the Top 20 Shortlist & Golden Door – REX Karmaveer Medal Nominees. 

“In an age when reason is clouded by misinformation and disinformation, the initiative of Tahira and the GOLDEN DOOR for recognizing honest and balanced literature should be supported by all those who value such ethics,” says Sagar S J B Rana, author, past member of the Nepali Congress Party and current VP of Nepal Art Council. 

The Founder of Golden Door is a veteran Technologist, Futurist and Author of the book ‘Through The Golden Door’, Tahira Amir Khan. Chair of the Judging Panel is Singapore’s Literary and Cultural Critic, Dr. Kirpal Singh. The Judging Panel comprises a distinguished group of internationally acclaimed writers, speakers and academia from USA, India and Australia. Some level of the evaluation will be supported by AI for the integrity of content.

“This is a worthwhile project and I laud Tahira for taking the lead. Misinformation is a plague and it is causing people to be confused about what to read and whether to believe it,” says Mano Sabnani, Singapore’s newsroom veteran, investor and author.

The Golden Door is creating a platform for the Truth-Seekers and Truth-Writers to turn into Truth-Creators for profound impact on the world. A wrongly-accused prisoner from Africa, an environmental activist from India, a Swiss-Filipino adventurer & philanthropist, and a Canadian modern-day nomad and author – they all come together as ‘messengers’ by speaking up for truth inputting down their stories. Change-makers united in their purpose to seek and promote truth and freedom.
