Founded in 1996 by Mirjana Van Blaricom, The International Press Academy (IPA) is among the largest and most diverse associations of professional entertainment journalists in the world.


With a membership of working press representing both domestic and foreign markets, the IPA reaches a truly global audience via major print, television, radio, cable, new media outlets, and internet pick-ups. More than 20 countries are represented by IPA members.


Unlike other press organizations, the IPA cordially extends invitations to all full-time and credentialed freelance entertainment journalists throughout the world.


Each year the members vote on their choices for film, TV, and new media, depending on their area of expertise. The results are tallied and reflected in the annual Satellite presentation.

IPA’s annual Satellite™ Awards gala honors outstanding achievement in the fields of cinema, television and interactive media, including games and specialty DVD releases.

The winners for the 21st Annual Satellite™ Awards are following artists in the categories  for television, motion picture, DVDs, games, and the Special Achievement Award.  Certain categories, such as Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Actor are given in major and independent films.
