Liz Hughes Award for Her Farm Radio 2023 ($1,000 CAD prize)

Deadline: October 28, 2022

Applications are open for the Liz Hughes Award for Her Farm Radio 2023. This award recognizes excellent radio programmes that serve women listeners.

Winning radio programmes 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 programme happen, including the manager(s), producer(s), host(s), presenter(s), reporter(s), technician(s), and others.

Winning programmes can deal with any subject! In other words, the programme does not need to focus exclusively on gender equality. For example, you can apply with a programme about health, education, agriculture, or a combination of topics. What’s important is that your program, no matter the topic, serves women!

Award

  • In recognition of their excellent work, the winning broadcast team will receive a certificate and a $1,000 CAD prize.
