The John Cotton Dana Award honors outstanding effective strategic communication campaigns that show results. Up to eight $10,000 awards are granted each year by the H.W. Wilson Foundation, and the winners are recognized at an Awards Ceremony sponsored by EBSCO Information Services during the ALA Annual Conference.  The competition is open to libraries of all sizes, types and budgets, agencies and associations that promote library service.

JCD entries are organized around the following areas: needs assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. Libraries submit samples of their processes, research, media releases, media coverage or other results received along with evaluation of the results and other documentation and supporting materials that show the scope and effectiveness of the library’s strategic communication efforts. Entries do not require a presentation portfolio. An electronic file containing a narrative and any supporting materials that show evidence of your work are all that your entry requires.
