NW Productions, a multi-media and entertainment company that produces live shows, red carpet events, women's empowerment workshops and other TV productions, announced today that it will host The Global Beauty Awards (TGBA), a first of its kind in celebrating pageantry, its leaders, and the accomplishments of the women who participate.
