The duPont-Columbia Awards have recognized excellence in broadcast journalism since their inception in 1942. Created by Jessie Ball duPont as a tribute to the journalistic integrity and public-mindedness of her husband, Alfred I. duPont, these awards are now regarded as the most prestigious prizes in television and radio news, the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes, which are also administered at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Categories include: Network and Nationally Distributed Cable Programs; Major Market Stations (DMA 1-10); Medium Market Stations (DMA 11-50); Small Market Stations (DMA 51 and higher); Independent Productions; Local Radio; and National Radio. Programs must have aired for the first time in the United States. Deadline: July 1, 2014.
