For the third consecutive year, Sylvia Melena served as a judge for the largest Hispanic media awards in the United States.

“Each year, the National Association of Hispanic Publications (NAHP) proudly presents the most comprehensive Hispanic media awards in the United States. Outstanding achievement in the Hispanic publishing industry is recognized in categories such as Editorial Writing, Design, Photo & Cartoon, Marketing & Promotion and many others.”1

“In 1989 Mr. Kirk Whisler, founding member of the organization, helped start what has become one of the NAHP’s strongest traditions: The José Martí Awards. Over the last three decades the awards have grown to be the largest Awards in Hispanic Media.”2

The 2021 José Martí Awards mark the third year Sylvia Melena has served as a judge. Over the last three years, Sylvia has judged writing, design, and marketing & promotion.

This year’s winners will be announced during the 2021 NAHP, Inc. Virtual Conference, October 6 – 8.
