The NALIP Official Selection is a unique showcase of short-form content screened at the NALIP Media Summit (July 19-21, 2021). Together, these works feature a variety of subjects, voices, and viewpoints that attest to the rich and talented diversity of the LatinX community.

The NALIP Media Summit is a 3-day event focused on bringing LatinX in media together and providing them with the tools, information, and networking opportunities that will propel them to advance their careers in the industry.

The 2021 NALIP Media Summit serves to celebrate the convergence of media and the inclusion of LatinX as one within the general market. As the industry shifts, NALIP strives to examine and explain how LatinX content creators can be proactive. We hope to continue pushing LatinX within the industry by giving them the right tools, the most up-to-date knowledge, and industry professionals' connections. Most importantly we seek to have more LatinX in front of the camera and behind the scenes to broaden the stories told through media.
