This award recognizes excellent radio programs that serve women listeners. Winning radio programs explore and advance gender equality—for example, by sharing women’s experiences and opinions, addressing topics that are important to women, or underlining the role of men in gender equality.
The award is given to the station team who make this program happen, including the manager(s), producer(s), host(s), presenter(s), reporter(s), technician(s), and others.
Winning programs can deal with any subject! In other words, the program does not need to focus exclusively on gender equality. For example, you can apply with a program about health, education, agriculture, or a combination of topics. What’s important is that your program, no matter the topic, serves women!
In recognition of their excellent work, the winning broadcast team will receive a certificate and a $1,000 CAD prize.
Any Farm Radio International broadcasting partner in sub-Saharan Africa can apply for the Liz Hughes Award! To apply, broadcasters or station managers must submit ALL of the following items via email to email@example.com on behalf of their program team:
