Amongst the attendees were Mexico City major candidates Beatriz Paredes and Miguel Ángel Mancera who interacted with cordiality and even friendliness despite being rivals in the upcoming elections. The ceremony was hosted by Beatriz Pagés and Tabasco Governor Andres Granier. During her speech Pagés declared the urgency to find peace and democracy in a country that is now troubled with violence, it is for that reason, Pagés continued, that this year the National Communications Prize winners were chosen also for their work in helping bring peace and democracy to the country.

Alongside Los hijos de la Malinche, businessman Carlos Slim was awarded the prize for his investment in culture and communications. In his speech Carlos Slim stated the urgent need to invest in the country, he underlined that it is only through investing that Mexico’s economy can continue to grow and that Mexico should take the example of Asia if it wants to be economically competitive. The Mexican businessman stated that Mexican economy can grow at a 6% yearly rate but it needs around 250 million dollars in investment, 10% of which would be foreign and the other 90% national.

Los hijos de la Malinche co-founder and CEO Emilio Lezama received the prestigious award from Beatriz Pagés. Accompanying him in the ceremony were Alberto Rubalcava, Esteban Tovar and José Sánchez Cetina all of which are part of Los hijos de la Malinche media group.
