Ethnic & Images Awards

AAPAA Awards - The Association of Asian/Pacific American Artists was founded in 1976 as a nonprofit, advocacy group composed of 350+ members and devoted to the creation of realistic portrayal of Asian/Pacific people in the media of television and motion pictures. In 1985 the group presented their first annual awards ceremony to those who had lived up to their organizations standards.

In 1986, Chinese-American actor Keye Luke (Master Po of Kung Fu fame) won the first Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed by the Association of Asian/Pacific American Artists.

In 1987, the motion picture Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) was honored for its balanced and fair depiction of racial groups.

Another Asian organization, The CAPE Foundation, Inc. sponsors programs affecting Asian Pacific Americans in the entertainment industry.  It was founded in Los Angeles in 1991.
