2013 Courage in Journalism Awards for International Women Journalists in USA

Monday, January 21, 2013


The International Women’s Media Foundation offers Courage in Journalism Awards for women journalists in USA . Candidates should be full-time, part-time or freelance women working in print, broadcast or online media in any country.

Competitive candidates will exhibit extraordinary strength of character, bravery and perseverance in reporting the news; have a strong commitment to press freedom and be well-respected journalists who have shown a commitment to journalism exemplified by a willingness to continually put their life or their freedom at risk to produce a body of work in the face of government oppression, political pressure, physical danger or other intimidating obstacles.

Candidates must currently be full-time, part-time or freelance women journalists working in print, broadcast or online media in any country.

Candidates employed by organizations whose main objective is not journalism will not be considered for this award.

Each year, the Courage in Journalism Awards honor three women journalists who have demonstrated extraordinary strength of character in pursuing their profession under difficult or dangerous circumstances, such as government oppression, threats to personal safety and other intimidating obstacles.

Nominations for the 2013 awards must be submitted by March 1, 2013.
