MIAMI, FL, Nov 14, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Organizers of Hispanicize 2013, the largest annual gathering of
Hispanic marketers, media, bloggers, agencies and entertainment
professionals, today announced the creation of "El Buen Pitch," a

to create the best marketing plan for a non-profit or charity serving
Latino communities. Hispanicize 2013 (www.Hispanicize.com) will be
held April 9-13, 2013 at the Eden Roc Hotel on Miami Beach.
"El Buen Pitch is our Hispanic market industry's opportunity to give
back to the Latino community by tapping into its collective power of
creativity and innovation to benefit a worthy organization," said
Manny Ruiz (@MannyRuiz), founder and creative director of Hispanicize
2013. "This contest is one of several high profile efforts we're
undertaking to show brands as well as advertising, PR and digital
agencies that our event's marketing industry agenda will be
comprehensive and second to none."
How "El Buen Pitch" Works
Co-created by Hispanicize 2013 in
partnership with leading Hispanic market trade media outlets PRODU,

Organizations have until December 7, 2012 to nominate themselves.
(Nominate your non-profit or charity online by reading the contest
