Icon’s relationship with the Lauerus foundation goes back to 2006, when the award ceremony was held in Barcelona for the first time.

During each year since then we provide camera crews and producers to cover Laureus foundation work in the US and Spain.

And this year we were back at the prestigeous awards ceremony in Malaysia providing a producer/director and camera team, covering events previous to the ceremony night and full coverage of the red carpet and back stage with names such as event host Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Foxx as well as all the sports stars present. We also focused on providing specific coverage for all Spanish media outlets for Laureus.
