We are proud to report that more than 50 entries have been received for the Carolyn C. Mattingly Award for Mental Health Reporting.
We are told by our partners at the National Press Foundation that this is an amazing response, especially for a brand new award that was not even on the radar of U.S. based news organizations until the last few months.
Submissions have come from big print outlets such as the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, networks like ABC and CNN, as well as digital publications including the Huffington Post, ProPublica and Bloomberg. In addition, there are dozens of applicants from medium sized newspaper, radio and TV outlets. We are extremely grateful for each and every submission.
In the coming weeks an independent and esteemed panel of judges will review the entries with the winner to be announced in May.
Most important, we are delighted to know that the Award is helping to elevate the discussion and bring mental health to the forefront of news media.
