The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) is accepting entries now for the 2021 Edward R. Murrow Awards competition. Journalism published by radio, television and digital news organizations as well as by student journalists between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, is eligible for entry.

"2020 showed just how much journalism matters," said RTDNA Executive Director Dan Shelley, who previously served on the Board of Directors as Chairman of the Awards Committee. "Journalists should be proud of the work they've done over the past year, telling some of the biggest stories of our lifetimes and, in many cases, providing life-saving information. This year's Murrow Awards will recognize that impact."

The 2021 competition includes a new category for Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, recognizing storytelling bringing awareness, solutions or dialogue to diversity, racial injustice or inequality.

Several new Student Murrow Award categories are also available, including Podcasts and new Feature Reporting and Hard News categories for both audio and video reporting.

The entry deadline for the 2021 Murrow Award competition, including professional and student divisions, is February 18, 2021 at 5pm ET. RTDNA members are eligible for reduced entry fees, and entries submitted by February 11 automatically receive a $10 off early-bird discount.

Among the most prestigious awards in news, the Murrow Awards recognize local and national news stories that uphold the RTDNA Code of Ethics, demonstrate technical expertise and exemplify the importance and impact of journalism as a service to the community.
