Religion Communicators Council Invites Entries 2017 Wilbur Awards

The Religion Communicators Council is an interfaith association of more than four hundred religion communicators working in print and electronic communication, advertising, and public relations. Members represent Bahá'í, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and Muslim faith communities. Founded in 1929, the council is the oldest public relations professional association in the United States.

The council is accepting entries from secular communicators for its annual Wilbur Award, which recognizes outstanding coverage and representation of faith and religion in the media. The prize is designed to honor excellence by individuals working in secular media — print and online journalism, book publishing, broadcasting, and motion pictures — in communicating religious issues, positive values, and themes.

For consideration for the 2017 Wilbur Award, entries must have been produced and published in 2016. Winners receive a handcrafted stained-glass trophy and national recognition for their work.

For complete submission guidelines, information about previous award winners and application instructions, see the RCC website.
