Media Awards

Crime Stoppers International Media Awards recognise best practice in advertising and promotion of Crime Stoppers campaigns, activities and specific calls to action, along with the level of community engagement achieved through these initiatives, across all mediums – print, television, radio, online and digital.

Sub-categories for each medium allow member programs to specify if their advertising and promotion activity was for a special feature/report, a specific crime of the week segment or a public service announcement; as well as stipulating the size of the community that their program serves.
