TikTok Australia hosted its second annual TikTok For You Fest last night at the Hordern Pavillion, announcing the Creator of the Year, TikTok for Good and Video of the Year awards.

Over 1,000 celebrities, media, and the best TikTok creators came together from all over Australia for the event, which was streamed live on @tiktok_australia. 

Hosted by Tony Armstrong, the event opened with a Welcome to Country to the tune of From a Land Down Under, followed by a montage of the best TikTok videos, trends and creators of 2022.

2021 Creator of the Year Millie Ford helped co-host the event, interviewing nominees, creators, and celebrities. On winning last year’s award, Ford joked, “It didn’t really do much for my dating life.”

Presenting the Video of the Year award was Heartbreak High star, Chloe Hayden, who awarded Katrina Ashleigh for her tortilla challenge video, which saw water, tortillas and people flying everywhere, clocking 125 million views.

On winning the award, Ashleigh told Mediaweek, “I feel just speechless, and it’s surreal that it was such an innocent authentic night that landed us this award.

“It’s such a sentimental video to us because it was such a hard time in my life when I asked my friends to come over, and they tried to cheer me up with this video, so honestly, we’re stoked.”
