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.”
