American Society on Aging Invites Nominations for Media Awards
Deadline: September 15, 2006
The ASA Media Awards are presented annually by the American Society on Aging ( http://www.asaging.org/) to journalists whose work has significantly increased general public awareness of aging issues at either the local, regional, or national level.
The ASA Media Awards are designed to recognize and encourage accurate and informed news coverage of our aging society; improve media understanding of the current and future impact of aging on Americans of all ages; and increase public awareness of the various life circumstances of older Americans.
The awards will be presented to journalists for news coverage published between September 1, 2005, and September 1, 2006. Submissions should focus on aging issues, rather than exemplify a range of work. Print, broadcast, and Web media journalists are eligible to apply.
Awards will be presented in two categories: 1) for media intended for and distributed to a national audience; and 2) for media intended for and distributed to a local or regional audience. For journalists with elder-specific publications or productions, the work is eligible if it has demonstrated general public impact.
Complete program information is available at the ASA Web site.
