Gabriel Awards
Share |


The Catholic Press Association is honored to present the Gabriel Awards, a former program of the Catholic Academy of Communication Professionals. The Gabriel Awards is a wonderful contest in which broadcasters and filmmakers of any faith background may submit work that nourishes the human spirit.

A Gabriel-worthy film or program affirms the dignity of human persons; it recognizes and upholds universally recognized human values such as community, creativity, tolerance, justice, compassion and the dedication to excellence. The primary goal of the Gabriel Awards is to encourage broadcasters and producers to create films and programming that serve, enrich and challenge their audiences.

The Catholic Press Association will list future Gabriel Award winners in the Catholic Journalist, on the CPA website and on the awards website as a gallery. For now, please click here to download a PDF file listing the 2017 winners.


CPA members and non-members may enter the Gabriel Awards. Submitters may be of any faith background, and their organizations do not need to be Catholic to be eligible for the Gabriels. The submissions, however, must be in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church.


Each entry costs $175.

Award Packets

The Gabriel Awards packets detail eligibility requirements, submission instructions, and category descriptions for each division of the Gabriel Awards. The award packet release for the 2018 program is forthcoming.
