The Religion Communicators Council announced the 15 Wilbur Awards for 2012 March 9 in New York. The awards honor excellence by individuals in secular media—print and online journalism, book publishing, broadcasting, and motion pictures—in communicating religious issues, values and themes during 2011.
The Religion Communicators Council has presented Wilbur Awards annually since 1949. Secular communicators enter work in eight categories. Juries of media professionals coordinated by council members across the country evaluate submissions on content, creativity, impact and excellence in communicating religious values.
The award is named for the late Marvin C. Wilbur, a pioneer in religious public relations, longtime council leader and former Presbyterian Church executive. The Presbyterian Church U.S.A. is underwriting the 2012 Wilbur Awards.
