Red Letter Awards 2021

December 9, 2021

6:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST

This year The WICT Network: Southeast is celebrating our 18th annual awards ceremony where we’ll be honoring outstanding achievement and leadership. Our honorees personify The WICT Network’s Touchstones of Leadership and actively enhance the perception of the media, entertainment and technology industry through their community and professional involvement.

We will host this year’s event on an interactive platform, Remo, which will provide an engaging experience for all who attend and deliver an “in person” feel for the virtual space. 

We are excited to welcome Melissa Knowles, correspondent for “Morning Express with Robin Meade” on HLN, as the MC for this year’s gala. Beatrice York, Vice President of Partnerships and Strategy at Afiniti, will deliver a keynote through a pre-taped address during the event. 

Our honorees are an amazing representation of our industry. Congratulations to our 2021 Red Letter Award recipients listed below.
