Disability Reporting Prizes Awarded

Each year, the National Center on Disability and Journalism recognizes the best reporting on disability being done around the world. The 2022 winners, which include BuzzFeed News, the Los Angeles Times and NPR, among others, can be found here.  

Annual prizes are awarded in both professional and student categories. The Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting on Disability honors professional journalists in both small media and large media categories. The Gary Corcoran Student Prize for Excellence in Reporting on Disability recognizes the work of college student journalists.

The Schneider and Corcoran prizes are the only journalism contests devoted exclusively to the coverage of people with disabilities and disability issues.

The 2023 contest will open for entries in May 2023.
