Christopher Award

Christopher Award

The Christopher Award (established 1949) is presented to the producers, directors, and writers of books, motion pictures and television specials that "affirm the highest values of the human spirit".[1] It is given by The Christophers, a Christian organization founded in 1945 by the Maryknoll priest James Keller.

The 2011 Christopher Awards were announced on April 6, 2011, and were presented in a ceremony on May 19.[2]
