    Each year the International Women’s Media Foundation recognizes outstanding women journalists with awards in two categories: Courage in Journalism and Lifetime Achievement.

    For both awards, candidates must be full-time, part-time or freelance women journalists currently working in print, broadcast or online media in any country. For the Courage Awards, candidates employed by organizations whose main objective is not journalism will not be considered. Candidates for the Lifetime Achievement award can be working or retired.

    Candidates may be nominated by colleagues, employers, journalists or others. Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations must be submitted in English.

    The deadline for nominations is March 4, 2011. Winners will be announced in May 2011.
