DEADLINE: IWMF Courage in Journalism Awards

Event Date: 
March 1, 2021

The International Women's Media Foundation's Courage in Journalism Awards show people that female journalists are not going to step aside, cannot be silenced, and deserve to be recognized for their strength in the face of adversity. Each year it honors three brave journalists who report on taboo topics, work in environments hostile to women, and share difficult truths. These women demonstrate a commitment to press freedom and extraordinary strength of character, overcoming unjust conditions to become leaders in their industry.

Reporting from areas of instability, oppression, and conflict, Courage in Journalism Awardees put themselves at risk to give us a window into critical global issues. Lifetime Achievement Honorees set new standards for women journalists and encourage future generations of reporters to find their voice. Nomination deadline: Mar 1, 2021.

Open to full-time or freelance women reporters, writers, editors, photographers or producers working in any country and of any nationality.
