Women’s Image Network to Salute Trio at Dec. 11 Awards

More than 85 women in film and TV, including Sandra Bullock, Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Oprah Winfrey, Cher, Nicole Holofcener and Callie Khouri have been nominated in 15 categories at the annual WIN Awards, to be held Dec. 11 at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club.

SAG Awards publicity executive Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda will be one of three special honorees at the ceremony held by Women’s Image Network. Aside from Jarrett Sepulveda, who will receive the first Special Tribute award, the organization will give a Living Legend kudos to Cecilia DeMille Presley, granddaughter of Cecil B. DeMille, and a Humanitarian Award to Ambassador Swanee Hunt.

Actor-producer Phyllis Stuart founded WIN in 1993. In a statement, Stuart said, “The WIN Awards advance gender parity by honoring both male and female media artists who create dimensional female media images. The WIN Awards exist because to the extent that women’s voices remain silent we are all robbed of the contribution. Until women and girls are liberated from poverty and injustice, world peace and sustainable development remain in jeopardy.”

Jarrett Sepulveda said, “Providing opportunities and mentoring to others is the best way I know to pay forward all the support I have received. To be acknowledged for doing so, and for being proficient at work I love, is indeed a great honor.”
