The Fr. John Catoir Social Media Evangelization Award

Press Association.

The first awards were presented in 2017 at the Catholic Media
Conference Awards Banquet held in Quebec, Canada, with

The purpose of this award is to recognize the positive
impact of a Social Media campaign to make Jesus known

The award attempts to recognize the very "Best
Example of Evangelization Using Social Media Platforms."

The criteria for measuring the success of the campaign is two
tiered. First and most important is the ability to achieve the
desired outcomes shown by the response and reactions of
those receiving the message. Second is the quality of
production and style of writing in delivering the message.
