Mission Statement

The Skyline Performer Awards were created by JAC Carrera with the help of his mother and friends to honor and celebrate young entertainers in the Tri-state area and around the world.

The Skyline Performer Awards will showcase the achievements of young artists in film, television, theater and many other areas. 

JAC is no stranger to the entertainment industry. He started his career at a very young age and has been working his way up in the industry. This year he was nominated for two awards for best performance in a short film at the YEA awards and the YAA awards both in Los Angeles, California. These nominations lead him to get together with his mother to create the first ever award show in New York City to recognize young artists in his hometown and around the world. After his trip to California, he asked himself "why doesn't New York City have a platform to recognize young talent right here as well?" His mother told him he should take charge and make it happen. They began putting ideas together to come up with the concept. It is a great feeling to be recognized for your hard work and to celebrate the achievement with your friends and family in a fun, family oriented environment.


"It takes a lot of hard work, preparation and dedication to take the journey of a young entertainer, but what makes it worth it, is when you have the encouragement and support of those who truly love you and believe in you. This is one of the biggest reasons I decided to take on this mission, to use my experience and this platform, to encourage, support, recognize and celebrate every single young actor and performer that just like me, works hard and struggles to make it in this business."
