DEG’s 2019 “Hedy Lamarr Award for Innovation in Entertainment Technology” will be presented to Dean Willow Bay of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. DEG created the Innovation Award to recognize female executives in the fields of entertainment and technology who have made a significant contribution to the industry. The award was presented in 2017 to Academy Award winning actor and advocate Geena Davis, Founder and Chair of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. The following year, DEG presented Nonny de la Peña, CEO Emblematic Group, with the award.
On the same evening, the 2019 “Hedy Lamarr Achievement Award for Emerging Leaders in Entertainment Technology,” which recognizes female college students whose studies in the fields of entertainment and technology have shown exceptional promise, will be presented to Maya Tribbitt of USC Annenberg and USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
