There have been several changes to the DOD awards programs. This past year, Defense Media Agency was directed to consolidated the three awards programs into one. A joint working group was formed to determine new categories and program criteria. This attachment is the final outcome of those efforts.
This year the Marine Corps awards will be conducted in accordance with the DOD Media Awards Program guidance attached. All categories in the Marine Corps Program will mirror those in the DOD Awards program.
Submission of awards will be conducted on DVIDS.
