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.
