Peabody Awards Opens Submission Process

The George Foster Peabody Awards (or simply Peabody Awards), recognize distinguished and meritorious public service by American radio and television stations, networks, online media, producing organizations, and individuals.  The submission period for the 76th Peabody Awards runs from October 13, 2016, with the deadline being January 9, 2017.  All projects must have been released or aired between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2016.

Realizing that there was no equivalent for the Pulitzer Prize in radio, the National Association of Broadcasters formed a committee to establish a prestigious award for excellence in broadcasting. The manager of WSB Radio in Atlanta Lambdin Kay asked John Drewry, the dean of Grady School of Journalism, to sponsor the award. They named the award for George Foster Peabody, a highly successful investment banker and recently deceased benefactor to the University of Georgia.
