    Do you know a woman journalist who demonstrates extraordinary strength of character in pursuing her profession under difficult or dangerous circumstances, for example, government oppression, threats to personal safety or other intimidating obstacles?

    Each year, the Courage in Journalism Awards honour three women journalists. Candidates for the Awards can be full-time or freelance women reporters, writers, editors, photographers or producers working in any country.

    The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes a woman journalist with a pioneering spirit and whose accomplishments have paved the way for future generations of women in the media.

    Self-nominations are not accepted.

    Nominations will be accepted on a rolling basis.
