January 18, 2022 (New York City/Los Angeles) – The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) has announced that the final deadline to submit entries for the 47th annual Gracie Awards has been extended until January 27, 2022. The regular deadline, with no additional fee, is January 20, 2022 (11:59 pm ET). The Gracie Awards, presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, celebrate programming and individual achievement by, for and about women in television, radio/audio and digital media.  Submissions from all facets of media are encouraged.    

The media community has been working tirelessly to keep the public informed the past two years of the ever-evolving pandemic while also learning to produce content in new ways. It is an important time to celebrate storytellers and content creators who are informing, entertaining and creating new ways to engage the audience.  A full list of the categories can be found here.

“We know the circumstances of the past two years led to delivering content to audiences in ways we never expected, which is why we are more committed than ever to honoring the remarkable work that has been created by, for and about women,” says Becky Brooks, AWMF president. “As our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Gracie Awards enable the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation to deliver on its promise of furthering the connection, education and recognition of women in media even during times of uncertainty.”

The Gracie Awards Gala is still currently scheduled for an in-person celebration May 24 at the famed Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire and Gracie Awards Luncheon for June 22 at Cipriani 42nd Street. AWMF extends gratitude to its ongoing donors and sponsors committed to furthering the mission of the organization including Crown Media Family Networks, CNN, and NCTA – The Internet and Television Association.
