Barbara Jordan Media Awards
The application process is now open for the Barbara Jordan Media Awards program from the Texas Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities.
The awards are presented in several different categories, including TV Feature, Internet, Photojournalism, etc. There is NO FEE for entries. Winners are selected by a panel of professional journalists, people with disabilities, and professionals in the field of disabilities.
The awards seek to spotlight journalists who portray people with disabilities in a respectful, positive manner. It is our belief that journalists help shape our culture and our perceptions; well-produced, creative stories showing a person with a disability as a person first benefits us all.
The deadline for submissions is February 17, 2017 for stories produced, published and/or distributed in Texas in 2016, although entries can be submitted any time before the deadline.
