Initially, the awards focused on a number of political blogs and a number of categories that expanded over the years. We are very proud to be the first awards to recognize this specific area in the political industry, which was made visible by the EFE Agency and after that generated a boom in international media managing to get the attention of companies like Yahoo and Google that placed the Victorys in the global audience.
In a short time it reached a unique position and the golden statuette represents the recognition given each year to the best of the political consulting industry. and that is that in advance, no other awards in the industry had focused on recognizing the talent and work of leaders, rulers and professionals working with candidates, parties and political causes in the Hispanic field.
What’s in the future?
The awards from the outset worked with the vision of raising the quality of the profession, recognizing the deserved talent and inspiring new professionals, with the mentality of a non-profit organization, a situation that remains to this day.
The award is held in Washington DC and is represented by leading experts in more than 21 countries, making them an event of global dimensions. Now, dreams and plans expand rapidly and will reach professionals not only Spanish-speaking.
