VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Dec. 31, 2018 - PRLog -- Ricepaper Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Asian of the Year awards, a new initiative which has been launched to celebrate two individuals who have risen to the top of their respective fields over the course of their ongoing careers. As a Canadian magazine, Ricepaper will be staying true to their roots and recognizing only Asian Canadians. Every year the award will be rotated to different professions to highlight a diverse selection of careers.

Given Asians in the entertainment industry have made an enormous presence on screens around the world in 2018, Ricepaper is awarding the title to actors Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Sandra Oh. Lee has won multiple awards for his role as Mr. Kim (Appa) in "Kim's Convenience" while Sandra Oh has been making major international headlines with her award nominations in "Killing Eve."

"All of us at Ricepaper Magazine are excited to highlight and celebrate successes of Asian Canadians who have done well not only domestically, but internationally as well. We are proud of their achievements, which are a result of hard work and perseverance in their respective fields," JF Garrard, Deputy Editor of Ricepaper remarks.

It is heartening to have Lee and Oh, two Canadians leading the edge of diversity changes in an industry which had traditionally been criticised for a lack of diversity. By seeing similar faces on film or television screens, younger Asian Canadians can now feel empowered to pursue decidedly non-traditional careers in the arts.
