    2016 Silver Gavel Awards Competition

    The American Bar Association Standing Committee on Gavel Awards is pleased to announce the 59th annual Silver Gavel Awards Competition for 2016. Each year the American Bar Association presents these awards to recognize work in media and the arts published or presented during the preceding year that have been exemplary in helping to foster the American public’s understanding of law and the legal system. 

    The deadline for the 2016 Silver Gavel Awards Competition is January 10, 2016. Entries must have been originally published, produced, or presented during 2015.

    A $75 handling fee is required for each entry submitted. Entrants with multiple entries may submit combined payment. The deadline for payment is January 18, 2016.

     

    Objectives

    The Silver Gavel Awards competition recognizes publications, multimedia, and programs that meet one or more of these objectives:

    • Educate the public about the American constitutional/legal system and the fundamental principles and values upon which it is based (this may include both domestic and international issues or comparative perspectives).
    • Educate the public about the operations of legal institutions (e.g., the courts, legislatures, regulatory agencies, prisons, and law enforcement agencies) and the role lawyers and other legal professionals play in the justice system.
