Courage in Journalism Award and Lifetime Achievement Award Nominations
The IWMF is currently seeking nominations for its 2012 Courage in Journalism Awards and Lifetime Achievement Award. Each year, the IWMF recognizes three women journalists who have shown extraordinary strength of character while working under difficult or dangerous circumstances with its Courage in Journalism Awards. A pioneering woman journalist is honored for her contributions to news media with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
During the past 21 years, 72 journalists have won Courage Awards and 20 journalists have been honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards. The 2012 awards will be presented at ceremonies in New York on October 24 and in Los Angeles on October 29.
