Gabriel Awards recognize works in film, television and radio programs that uplift and nourish the human spirit. A Gabriel-worthy film or program affirms the dignity of human persons; it recognizes and upholds universally-recognized human values such as community, creativity, tolerance, justice, compassion and the dedication to excellence.
Open to all Radio and Television Stations and Producers in the United States and Canada.
The Gabriel Awards are sponsored by the Catholic Academy for Communication Arts Professionals.
