Image Awards 2021 might look different but show will go on
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jacksonville Image Awards, a one-of-a-kind community recognition program to recognize outstanding achievements in the African American community will return for 2021, although the show might look different. CW17 will partner with the Cochran Firm for the second year in a row to host the February awards show, which is modeled after the official Trumpet Awards and hosted by News4Jax anchors Tarik Minor and Melanie Lawson. I could not be prouder to announce the second annual Jacksonville Image Awards program. Due to the pandemic, the Image Awards could be held virtually in 2021. Like the Trumpet Awards, the Jacksonville Image Awards were created to herald the accomplishments of black humanitarians who have succeeded against immense odds.
