 2020 Awards Programs 

 

Established in 1911, The Catholic Press Association is an association of publisher and communication professionals that honor excellent work across media platforms.


ALL winners are honored at the annual Catholic Media Conference each June, receive an award certificate, are listed in the association's award issue of The Catholic Journalist, and are viewable on the award portal of the CPA website.


The St. Francis de Sales Award is the highest award the Catholic Press Association presents to a CPA member for his/her "outstanding contribution to the Catholic journalism."

 

Initiated in 1965, The Gabriel Awards is a premier program honoring excellence in film, broadcast, and cross- platform media production released in the United Stated and Canada.

 

The Catholic Press Association and SIGNIS North America, an affiliate of the Catholic world association for communication, sponsor the Gabriel Awards.  Recipients of a Gabriel Award receive a coveted Gabriel statuette.
