About The LIVE Awards Show
The Hispanic Choice Awards (HCA) honors Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware’s Latino professionals, organizations and businesses across all sectors via a three-part event: a red carpet entrance via media row, the televised awards ceremony featuring live performances from today’s top Latin music performers and appearances by local & national leaders and a VIP After Party.
The Hispanic Choice Awards engages and connects the diverse Delaware Valley to honor and celebrate industry leaders, cross-sector collaborations, and spotlight the Hispanic influence in the region.
Together, individuals build a mosaic that makes a powerful impact on the economy and that ensures the longevity of our region. Our mission is to cheer on their stories and bring them to light.
Established in 2004 as an intimate affair to honor the local Latino business community and with only 23 attendees, HCA is now the most widely anticipated event in the tri-state area for Latino professionals. For the past two years, the Hispanic Choice Awards has been broadcast on the CW and CBS Philadelphia affiliates. In 2013, the special garnered over 28,000 adults 18+ viewers.
