2022 COHORT


About Creators of Color

Creators of Color presented with Canva is a new program that spotlights and empowers sports entertainment creatives ages 21-33 who identify as Black, Latino, Asian, and People of Color.

In our inaugural year, we received over 300 nominations and applications. The cohort of 33 honorees was hand-selected by members of The Engagement Academy of Sports x Entertainment across eight creative specialties: Video Production; Social Media; Podcasting; Marketing & Revenue; Storytelling & Editorial; On-Camera Talent; Design & Art; and Photography.

Those selected for the cohort have created brand-defining work for organizations at the intersection of sports, content, and entertainment and helped diversify their fan audiences. This game-changing annual recognition program for minority marketers and content creators will help ensure the sports x entertainment community looks, thinks, and creates more like the global, multicultural, and diverse fans who consume its content and experiences.
