EJ Panaligan editor Screenwriter, actor and director Adjani Salmon’s star is rising, with a slew of recent awards to show for it.

Most recent is the 59% Gen Now award, which was presented to him at last week’s inaugural Soho House Awards in London. Named after Oscar-winning actor Daniel Kaluuya’s recently-established production company, the award seeks to recognize and advance diverse creative talent, particularly from the United Kingdom, who are already making a clear impact on the entertainment industry with their work but could benefit from some added visibility.

Kaluuya personally presented the award to Salmon at the awards ceremony on Sept. 1.
