The Latin Grammy Trustees Award is an award presented annually by the Latin Recording Academy, the same organization that distributes the Latin Grammy Awards, to individuals "who have made significant contributions, other than performance, to Latin music during their careers".[1] Recipients can include producers, songwriters, composers, record label executives, and journalists. Award recipients are honored during "Latin Grammy Week", a string of galas prior to the annual Latin Grammy Awards ceremony.[2] Since its inception, the award has been presented to recipients originating from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela. The award was first presented to Mexican composer and musician Manuel Esperón.[3] Since 2005, the Trustees Awards has been presented to more than one recipient.[4] Pierre Cossette is the only recipient of the Latin Grammy Trustees Award to also receive the Grammy Trustees Award in 1995.[5]
