Our founding fathers knew that a free press was essential to our representative democracy. Under the protection of the First Amendment, journalists can safely criticize our government and our elected officials… but who holds the media to account? The Mirror Awards honor the reporters, editors, and teams of writers who hold a mirror to their own industry for the public’s benefit.

Established by the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, the competition is open to anyone who conducts reporting, commentary, or criticism of the media industries in a format intended for a mass audience.

Eligible work includes print, broadcast, and online editorial content focusing on the development or distribution of news and entertainment. Winners are chosen by a group of journalists and journalism educators, and each carries an honorarium. The deadline for nominations is February 15. You can self-nominate or submit work you deem worthy of consideration. Learn more. -s
