Nominations for 2nd Annual "American Latino TV Awards"

The award-winning, nationally syndicated TV programs "American Latino TV" and "LatiNation" announced today, the nominees for the 2nd Annual "American Latino TV Awards, " with voting and promotion scheduled to begin this week. The "American Latino TV Awards" is a celebration of the show's historic sixth season and is highly anticipated after the success of the first ever "American Latino TV Awards" in 2007.
"American Latino TV Awards" serves to recognize excellence and achievement in the American Latino community and as a tribute to the individuals, organizations and projects that have been featured in the producers' six-season library of multi-award winning and groundbreaking television shows.

The nominees (four per category with six categories) for the unique awards show format were selected by a team of "American Latino TV" producers. This year's awards show hosts four exciting new categories: Favorite Alternative Artist, Favorite Indie Film, Favorite Extreme Athlete and Underground Fashion as well as returning categories: Favorite Indie Musical Artist(s) and Most Inspiring American Latino(s). The winners will be decided by online voting and announced during the syndicated broadcast of the "American Latino TV Awards" special, which will begin airing later this summer in over 70 cities nationwide. A promotional campaign of TV, radio, local and national print and online ads will direct viewers to www.AmericanLatinoAwards.com which provides a detailed list of nominees, along with a short video segment of each one, and the ability to cast votes.
