The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is seeking nominations for its Courage in Journalism Award and Lifetime Achievement Award. The awards honour women journalists who have demonstrated extraordinary strength of character under difficult or dangerous circumstances.

Since 1990, the IWMF has honoured more than 100 journalists in 56 countries.

Candidates for the Courage in Journalism Awards can be full-time or freelance women reporters, writers, editors, photographers, or producers working in any country. Winners are honoured for their bravery in the face of threats, intimidation, political repression, and imprisonment while working as journalists.

Winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award are pioneers who broke down barriers to make it possible for women journalists around the world to succeed.
Winners will receive cash prizes, and will travel to the United States to attend the award ceremonies.

The deadline to submit a nomination is March 16, 2018. Application forms are available in English, French, Spanish, and Russian.
