25th Annual Imagen Awards
Sunday, August 15th
Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California
The Imagen (Spanish for “image’) Foundation will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the prestigious Imagen Awards, to honor positive portrayals of Latinos and Latino culture in television and film, at a gala luncheon on Sunday, August 15th, at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California.
The Imagen (pronounced ee-MAH-hen) Awards program was established in 1985 from a suggestion by veteran television producer Norman Lear (“All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons”) to encourage and recognize positive portrayals of Latinos in the media. Later, as The Imagen Foundation, it expanded its programs and initiatives to further its mission to serve as a bridge between the Latino community and the entertainment industry – providing access, education, and resources for Latinos in the industry as well as those seeking careers in entertainment.
Over the years, The Imagen Awards event has honored such prestigious artists as Cesar Romero, Rita Moreno, Ricardo Montalban, Martin Sheen, Placido Domingo, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek, Lalo Schifrin and Celia Cruz. Recent honorees include Kenny Ortega, America Ferrera, George Lopez, Nielsen Media Research and the Disney/ABC Television Group.
