Call For Entries: 2018 DART Awards

The DART Centre for Journalism and Trauma is now accepting entries for the annual Dart Awards for Excellence in Coverage of Trauma, and wants your help in recognising thoughtful, hard-hitting reporting on violence and tragedy produced this year.

Since 1994, the Dart Awards have honoured innovative, ethical and effective reporting from North America on the impact of violence, crime, disaster and other traumatic events.

The Awards recognise media coverage that sets a new standard for grappling with the complexity of trauma and its impact on individuals, families and communities. Two cash prizes of $5,000 will be awarded.

The Dart Awards are unique. They are the only journalism prize to reward and inspire innovative, effective, ethical and in-depth trauma reporting across media boundaries. The Awards are a team prize, recognising that effective trauma reporting demands a special commitment from news organisations. Winners are honoured in a public ceremony at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.

The deadline for entries is January 26, 2018. Click here for full submission guidelines, and click here to submit your entry. And see all the past Dart Award-winning pieces here.
