"Clearly not just another award-show on the already filled calendar, the Humanitas Prize fills the void when it comes to recognizing the need for compassion in the television and film writing." - Bob Sharka, Friends of Film


In American culture at the present time, only the human family itself surpasses media's capacity to communicate values, form consciences, supply role models, and motivate human behavior.

Humanitas exists to encourage those who create contemporary media to use their immense power in a humanistic way, to enrich as well as entertain their viewers.

Enriching them means:

  • Giving them some piece of the truth about what it means to be a human being.
  • Challenging them to take charge of their lives and use their freedom in a responsible way.
  • Motivating them to reach out in respect and compassion to all their brothers and sisters in the human family.
