The Image Award nominees


Choose the winners

The NAACP Image Awards is hosting its 55th annual Image Award ceremony, and they're letting the public decide who the winners are for some categories. Most award shows have a board of people composed of executives, experts, board members, and influential people in the industry to help decide who gets what award by the criteria they set. But the Image Awards are taking a different direction while adding new categories to highlight a bigger talent pool in the entertainment industry. 

This year's award show will introduce eight new categories: Motion Picture: Outstanding Youth Performance; Outstanding Cinematography in a Motion Picture; Outstanding Short Form Documentary Recording: Outstanding Original Score for TV/film: Podcast: Outstanding Scripted Series Podcast; Outstanding Limited Series/Short Form podcast: Literature: Outstanding graphic novel: Stunt: Outstanding stunt ensemble. 

These categories are filled with talents like Mila Davis-Kent from Creed 3, Aven Countney from A Thousand and One, and Films, 'They Cloned Tyrone,' 'American Fiction,' and podcasts like TwentyOne 21: A Black AF Comedy and Yes We Are Cannabis. 

Voting is open until 11:59 p.m. Feb. 24. Take a look at all of the categories and nominees by visiting
