The Stylos Awards at the Phoenix Art Museum may not be until November 30, but the booths (in this case online surveys) are officially open and counting votes until September 30.
Since they began in 2005, the Stylos awards have recognized those who reflect the accomplishments of the Latino community in Arizona. The event is a blend of music and fashion -- as local designers will have a chance to show off new lines while bands and dance groups perform.
