The Courage in Journalism Awards show people that female journalists are not going to step aside, cannot be silenced, and deserve to be recognized for their strength in the face of adversity. Each year it honors three brave journalists who report on taboo topics, work in environments hostile to women, and share difficult truths. These women demonstrate a commitment to press freedom and extraordinary strength of character, overcoming unjust conditions to become leaders in their industry. So far, we have honored more than 100 groundbreaking journalists in 56 countries.Candidates for the Courage in Journalism Awards must be full-time staff or freelance women reporters, writers, editors, photographers, or producers working in any country and of any nationality.
