The NAACP Image Awards may not be as famous as the Oscars or the Grammys, but they’re just as glamorous and even more fun. If you enjoy supporting black artists and minorities in music and entertainment, this is the award show for you. Luckily, we have a limited selection of VIP tickets to the 54th Annual NAACP Image Awards. The award show and after-party are going down on Saturday, February 25, 2023, so save the date and get ready for an incredible time!
Achievements in Music, Film and More at the Image Awards
Everyone knows the NAACP as one of the nation’s premier social justice organizations. With over 2,000 local chapters engaging more than 2 million grassroots activists, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is dedicated to fighting for equality and eliminating racial prejudice.
This is some serious business, yet for one night, the organization kicks back to celebrate some of the year’s most noteworthy black performers in music, TV and films. It also recognizes the authors of outstanding podcasts and literary works, including poems, children’s books, fiction and nonfiction. Many, but not all, categories are voted on by fans. You can vote for your favorite nominees right now!
The Venue and Host
Just like the Oscars and the Grammys, the Image Awards have been held at storied venues, including the Beverly Hilton, The Hollywood Palladium and, most recently, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Not surprisingly, the Image Awards have been hosted by an array of amazingly talented performers.
Previous hosts include Steve Harvey, Tyler Perry, Halle Berry and Chris Tucker. Since 2014, Anthony Anderson has been the face of the Image Awards. An industry veteran, Anderson may look familiar from his roles in Black-ish, Law & Order, Transformers, Me, Myself & Irene and many others.
The Award Show
At the Image Awards, the NAACP hands out dozens of trophies, so you can expect plenty of heartfelt acceptance speeches. The event features rolls of red carpet, incredible clothing and colorful performances from legends like Mary J. Blige. Last year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended. It doesn’t get bigger than that!
One thing that may surprise you is that the Image Awards have been around for over 50 years. The award show was co-founded back in 1967 by Sammy Davis Jr. and several other members of the NAACP’s Beverly Hills-Hollywood chapter.
Since COVID protocols have finally relaxed, you can bet that the producers will go big with the award show and related festivities. This is the year to attend! Please note that proof of COVID vaccination or a negative antigen test may be required. Nobody wants to be the person who gave Will Smith COVID!
