Online nominations voting opens December 9th


Los Angeles–Online voting will begin on December 9th, officially completing this year’s record breaking submissions process for the 45th NAACP Image
Awards. Members of the 300-person Nominating Committee, and 20 sub-committees will have until December 30, 2013 to select from nearly 1,600 entries for the

Image Awards has been truly astounding” commented Leonard James, III, Chairman, NAACP Image Awards.

Image Awards will be broadcast live from Pasadena on Saturday, February 22, 2014 on TV One.
