Deadline extended: Gwen Ifill Award for women journalists of color [US]

Posted on Feb 25, 2022 in Diversity and Inclusion

Women and non-binary journalists of color working in the United States are eligible for an award.

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting nominations for the Gwen Ifill Award. The Award was established to honor the memory of Gwen Ifill, the legendary co-anchor of the PBS NewsHour, who passed away in November 2016.

Candidates for the award will be evaluated on criteria including their record of outstanding achievement in journalism, and the extent to which they represent the values Ifill embodied, including in the areas of mentorship, leadership, and commitment to diversity in journalism.

Self-nominations and third-party nominations will be accepted.

The deadline is April 6.
