To vote, please go to www.almaawards.com. Voting ends on September 7, 2012.

Winners of the NCLR ALMA Awards will be determined by evaluating votes cast as well as box office, Nielsen, and Billboard rankings, and in consultation with the NCLR ALMA Awards Production Leadership Team. Selection rules and eligibility are posted at www.almaawards.com. Not all awards will be presented on-air during the NBC special.

This year the show will be produced by Dick Clark Productions' executive producers Orly Adelson and Barry Adelman along with Eva Longoria and Janet Murguía, President and CEO of NCLR.

With their partnership and with our strong and varied slate of nominees this year, we're looking forward to presenting an amazing show for our viewers and fans," stated Janet Murguía.

"We're excited to partner once again with the NCLR ALMA Awards to showcase the outstanding contributions and achievements of Latino performers," said Doug Vaughan, NBC's Senior Vice President, Specials and Late Night Programming.
