The categories dedicated to recognizing content creators include Creator of the Year, which honors the top representatives of our culture in the realm of social media; Creator Who Inspires Me, celebrating those who generate inspiring content; Creator with a Cause, honoring those who dedicate their time to raising awareness and defending social causes; and Best LOL, highlighting those who bring laughter and joy to their followers with humor. The nominated content creators in Spanish were selected based on their reach, audience engagement, and impact within the United States.
