Women’s Media Foundation Accepting Nominations for ‘Courage in Journalism’ Awards

Executive Director of IWMF

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting nominations from third parties for the 2022 edition of its Courage in Journalism Awards established to honour women journalists who set themselves apart by exhibiting extraordinary bravery, persistence and resilience.

The awards honor women who have demonstrated extraordinary strength of character in journalism under difficult or dangerous circumstances.

The Awards show people that women journalists are not going to step aside, cannot be silenced, and deserve to be recognized for their strength in the face of adversity and so they honour the brave journalists who report on taboo topics, work in environments hostile to women, and share difficult truths.

The Wallis Annenberg Justice for Women Journalists Award brings attention to women journalists who are detained, jailed or imprisoned and although many of these cases receive worldwide attention at the time of arrest, they leave the public eye as new cases emerge. Sharing the stories of imprisoned women journalists is critical to assuring the safety of women journalists.

Winners typically receive cash prizes, which have yet to be determined, and travel to the United States to attend the award ceremonies.

Nomination close on March 18, 2022 but self-nominations are not accepted. To nominate, please first create an account.
