Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications has established the Mirror Awards to recognize excellence in media industry reporting. The call for entries for the 2007 Mirror Awards is now under way. The deadline for entries is no later than midnight on Jan. 15, 2007. Complete information, including an application and entry guidelines, is now available on the Mirror Awards website, http://mirrorawards.syr.edu.
The Mirror Awards will honor reporters, editors and teams of writers who hold a mirror to their own industry for the public’s benefit. Honorees will be recognized for news judgment and command of craft in reporting, analysis and commentary on developments in the media industry and its role in the economy, culture and democracy.
The awards are open to anyone who conducts reporting, commentary or criticism of the media industries — television, newspaper, magazine, radio, advertising, public relations, the Internet and other forms of content-rich digital communications — in a format intended for a mass audience. The first Mirror Awards ceremony will take place in New York City in late spring 2007.
