Established by the Newhouse School in 2006, the Mirror Awards honor the reporters, editors and teams of writers who "hold a mirror to their own industry" for the public's benefit. They are the most important awards for recognizing excellence in media industry reporting.
 
The competition is open to anyone who conducts reporting, commentary or criticism of the media industries in a format intended for a mass audience. Eligible work includes print, broadcast and online editorial content focusing on the development or distribution of news and entertainment. All entries must have been published or broadcast between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2015.
 
Entries are evaluated based on three criteria: excellence of craft, framing of the issue and appropriateness for the intended audience. Winners are chosen by a group of journalists and journalism educators. An awards ceremony will be held in June 2016 in New York City.
