In the spirit of Hispanic Heritage Month, El Diario created the El Award, a recognition that celebrates the achievements of Latino Men in the tri state area and their contribution to our community. Over 300 men have been recognized by El Diario in the last decade. This program has successfully created a group of role models for the new generations to look up to and realize that everything is possible with dedication and hard work.

“Spearheading the efforts to acknowledge outstanding personalities in the Hispanic world is one of the biggest satisfactions bestowed on me as the CEO of Impremedia. Sharing the names of our distinguished men is not only a reward for them but, fundamentally, a profound motivational message for the members of our community,” said Gabriel Dantur, CEO of ImpreMedia, the parent company of El Diario.
