Our Awards

Our Awards

The Delta Democrat-Times and our exceptional staff have won many awards over the years. Our publication has garnered recognition from news agencies since our inception in 1868.

The history of our publication runs deep into the developmental history of our community. Much of our work routinely impacts both local and state-wide elements within Mississippi.

We center ourselves on three key attributes: our editorial standards, our general sense of integrity and a consistent strive for excellence. It has led to our paper featuring some outstanding award-winning journalism.

We are particularly proud of all the public-service awards listed below.
