ALA's John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award
Deadline: Feb. 14, 2014
The American Library Association (ALA) is accepting submissions for the John Cotton Dana Award (JCD). The award, managed by the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), honors outstanding library public relations, whether a summer reading program, a year-long centennial celebration, fundraising for a new college library, an awareness campaign or an innovative partnership in the community. Eight $10,000 awards are granted each year by the H.W. Wilson Foundation, and the annual Awards Ceremony is sponsored by the ALA and EBSCO Information Services.
JCD submissions include strategic library communication campaigns from all sizes and types of libraries. Submissions include rebranding efforts, promoting unique archives, awareness campaigns and community partnerships. Entries may be submitted by any library, Friends group, consulting agency or service provider, excluding libraries represented by the JCD Committee members.
