The Dart Awards spotlight the best in trauma reporting.

Presented by the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, the annual awards recognize “innovative, ethical and effective reporting on the impact of violence, crime, disaster and other traumatic events,” with a focus on victims, survivors and contributing to public understanding. Entries across all media are welcome, as long as they were published sometime in 2012, and two winners will receive a $5,000 cash prize each. The deadline for the 2013 awards is Jan. 25, 2013, with the winners to be announced in April. Recent award recipients in public media include “Living 9/11″ from WNYC and the Public Radio Exchange, “Brain Wars” from ProPublica and NPR, and “Seeking Justice for Campus Rapes” from NPR.
