The Christopher Awards, which honor creative works that “positively impact and shape our world,” has announced deadlines for entries for its 51st annual ceremony, taking place in Manhattan on Feb. 24.
Submissions in the book and children’s book categories are being accepted until Nov. 24. The deadline for TV specials and miniseries entries is Dec. 6. Qualified works must have original publication or air dates within 1999.
In the feature category, films that have Motion Picture Assn. of America ratings between G and R and release dates before Dec. 31 are eligible.
“The Christopher Awards embrace the culture of every nation, religion and age level. … Themes include but are not limited to: profiles in courage, stories of determination and vision, chronicles of constructive action and empowerment,” said coordinator Judith Trojan, who recently was appointed to replace the retiring Peggy Flanagan.
Among the recipients of last year’s Christophers were Maya Angelou’s film “Down in the Delta;” HBO miniseries “From Earth to the Moon;” and David Halberstam’s civil rights tome “The Children.”
