Benefits of Sponsorship

people in front of a step and repeatThis year we received nearly 5,000 entries from hundreds of digital and broadcast network journalism organizations and are awarding more than 130 National Murrow Awards in 17 categories.

Sponsorship sends a message that your brand is strongly aligned with RTDNA’s shared mission to protect the rights of journalists in the courts and legislatures throughout the country, as well as to promote ethical standards in the industry. 

Sponsorships and corporate con­tributions help to fund some of the Association and Foundation’s most successful programs that foster excellence throughout the industry. Our sponsorships provide companies with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with members of RTDNA and speak with elec­tronic journalists from around the country. Sponsors can create mutu­ally beneficial networking opportunities and create comradery among those in the profession as well as celebrate their accomplishments.
