The Kaleidoscope Awards were developed as part of RTDNA's commitment to achieve diversity in the newsroom through developing news content and editorial staffs that reflect the changing face of communities. The purpose of the award is to encourage and showcase journalistic excellence in covering issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity. It is presented annually to news organizations that show an ongoing commitment to covering the diversity of the communities they serve.
"We're proud to recognize news organizations that demonstrate a commitment to report on the depth and breadth of their communities," said RTDNA Chair Amy Tardif. "This year's winning entries can serve as models for newsrooms of any size across the country to emulate."
The winners will be recognized on Saturday, September 19 at Excellence in Journalism 2015 in Orlando, Florida.
