Since 1967, The NAACP Image Awards® has celebrated the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts and the empowerful spirit of those who promote social justice, equality and positive representation through their work.  For nearly 20 years, Wells Fargo has been excited to join the NAACP in celebrating these progressive individuals making an impact on our screens and in our communities. The NAACP Image Awards® not only honors these incredibly talented people of color, but also inspires the next generation to be creative, courageous and empowerful.

This year, Wells Fargo is the presenting title sponsor of the televised awards presentation and the exclusive sponsor of the coveted Chairman’s Award. The Chairman’s Award is bestowed in recognition of individuals who demonstrate exemplary public service and use their distinct platforms to create agents of change. We look forward to sharing the amazing story of this year’s honoree. Wells Fargo is also the premier sponsor of the Virtual Experience which will recognize winners in more than 60 non-televised award categories in the fields of television and streaming, music, literature, film, and activism.

Award nominees were announced on February 2nd, which took place in a special virtual event on NAACP Image Awards’ Instagram channel. We were grateful to be a part of the nominees announcement which featured a message from Gigi Dixon, Wells Fargo Head of External Engagement for Diverse Segments, Representation and Inclusion, which can be viewed here.
