The media’s reporting of violence against women and girls can play a vital role in ending it. It can increase our understanding of this abuse and challenge its place in society. But as we see all too often, it can also reinforce victim-blaming attitudes and beliefs that violence against women and girls is a normal part of life.
We know that violence against women is not inevitable, and that by shifting our collective attitudes and beliefs and addressing the inequality that underpins them, we can create a world without this abuse. That’s why together with our member organisation Zero Tolerance, we’re recognising journalists, writers and content creators who report on violence against women responsibly, sensitively and accurately.
We’re particularly interested in pieces which represent voices not often heard, for example Black, Asian, and ethnically diverse people; LGBT+ people; disabled people; and people from rural communities; and/or people from working-class/lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
We need your help to find the very best writing in each of our award categories:
- Best news piece
- Best feature
- Best opinion and comment
- Best blogpost or self-published article
- Wooden Spoon (a harmful trend or theme in reporting on VAWG)
We will also be awarding our experts’ pick: broadcast. Please note we are not accepting nominations for broadcast media pieces.
