GUANGZHOU, China, Jan. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIZHI INC. ("LIZHI") (NASDAQ: LIZI), an audio-based social and entertainment platform, wrapped up its successful 2021 Voice Gala with an awards ceremony yesterday. The annual Voice Gala is one of LIZHI’s major activities each year, aimed at uncovering the potential of content creators through a series of events and rewarding outstanding creators with an array of prizes including the Honor of the Year award. ​​

Originally launched in 2018, the LIZHI Voice Gala is now in its fourth year. The event serves as a platform for content creators to express themselves, share their creative work, and communicate and interact with one another. The awards ceremony was broadcast live online on the LIZHI App and the host of exciting events drew enthusiastic participation from audiences, bringing content creators and podcast fans together through positive interactions.

Ever since the company’s founding in 2013, the user experience has been at the core of LIZHI’s services, from looking after the growth of content creators to building and perfecting a range of content creator cultivation and support mechanisms.
