Nominees will be announced on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, and the winners will be determined by the vote of the NAACP membership. The NAACP Image Awards is recognized as the nation’s preeminent multi-cultural awards show from an African American point of view.  The event celebrates the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.

Submissions for the 48th NAACP Image Awards can be submitted by producers, studios/networks, agents, managers or publicists in the categories of motion picture, television, recording, and literature. The eligibility period for all projects is January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.  In addition, projects in the motion picture category (and individual achievements within that category) must have been initially released and distributed in the U.S. with a minimum commercial theatrical run in Los Angeles or New York for seven (7) consecutive days.

All entries are evaluated and narrowed to the top five in each category by members of the NAACP Image Awards Nominating Committees, which are comprised of individuals within the entertainment industry (studio/network executives, actors, artists, managers, agents, publicists, journalists, literary agents, and others) and NAACP Board members, NAACP Foundation Trustees, NAACP staff, and key interfaces.

The 48th NAACP Image Awards will be nationally telecast live on TV One on Saturday, February 11, 2017, as a two-hour special from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The telecast will also include a 90-minute pre-show from the star-studded red carpet.
