The 2023 Dart Awards went to The Boston Globe for “Kate Price Remembers Something Terrible” and to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and ProPublica for “The Landlord & the Tenant.” Honorable Mentions went to Gimlet, a Spotify Studio, and The New York Times. A special citation went to The Washington Post.
"This year’s Dart Award finalists showcase journalists contending in fresh and powerful ways with the hardest questions about the impact of violence," said Dart Center Executive Director Bruce Shapiro. "From excavations of long-past exploitation to searing inquiries into all-too-present gun violence – supported alike by under resourced, embattled local newsrooms and the largest national media – this year’s finalists take reporting in new directions in sourcing, interviewing and data analysis, all in service of a shared commitment to innovative, ethical reporting on survivors of violence."
The Dart Awards for Excellence in Coverage of Trauma honor innovative, ethical and effective reporting of violence, trauma and tragedy across all media platforms. Judges will make two awards, each carrying a cash prize. The submission deadline has been extended. Entries must be received by February 9, 2023 at 5:00 pm EST.
