The American Music Award for "Favorite Latin Artist" has been awarded since 1998.

Years reflect the year in which the American Music Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year (until 2003 onward when awards were handed out on November of the same year).

Julio Iglesias was the first winner in 1998. His son, Enrique Iglesias is the artist to have won most (8 awards). Shakira was the first female artist to ever receive the award in 2005 (and again in 2006, 2010 and 2012, having won a total of 4). The most recent winner is Enrique Iglesias.
