World Screen & NATPE to Present Premio Ícono TV Latina

World Screen is collaborating with NATPE to present the inaugural Premio Ícono TV Latina award in 2020 to an executive who has contributed significantly to the growth of the Latin American media industry.

Premio Ícono TV Latina will be presented during NATPE 2020, set to be held from January 21 to 23 in Miami. NATPE Miami marks its 10th anniversary in 2020.

The winner of the inaugural Premio Ícono TV Latina honor will be announced later this year.

This is the latest addition to World Screen’s portfolio of awards honoring innovation in the media industry, joining the Trendsetter Award at MIPCOM, the Factual Trendsetter Award at MIPDoc and the Kids Trendsetter Award at MIPJunior.

“We’re seeing a wave of innovation across Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market as producers, broadcasters, distributors and platforms look to set a new bar in production quality in order to appeal to audiences at home and abroad,” says Ricardo Guise, the president and publisher of World Screen. “We’re delighted to be working with JP Bommel and the team at NATPE on the Premio Ícono TV Latina award to honor contributions to the Latin American media industry.”
“The Latin American executives who attend NATPE Miami are a driving force in the evolution of content, how it is created and distributed around the world,” says JP Bommel, president and CEO of NATPE. “Their innovative strategies move the needle across all sectors of the industry. I can’t think of a better partner than World Screen and TV Latina, premier voices in the global content community, to recognize and celebrate leadership, innovation and creativity with this Premio Ícono award for excellence and leadership in the buoyant Latin American market.”
