The Egan Award for Journalistic Excellence is one of the preeminent awards in the Catholic media. In addition to evaluation by top tier judges in the secular media, peer recognition, and a trophy, winners receive an all-expenses paid trip to witness CRS' work overseas. Entries should exemplify CRS' mission of solidarity with the poor either abroad or in the United States, in addition to other criteria. Please use the left navigation bar to learn more about the award, read stories by past winners, and download an entry form.
Please note: Online-only publications are eligible to enter the competition. Please see entry guidelines for more details.
