It’s a tough job – but someone’s gotta do it

The 2021 Gracies Judging application has closed. If you are interested in judging, please email us at

For more than four decades, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has been a leader in acknowledging content creators making exemplary contributions to the industry. Gracies judges hold one of the most important roles in evaluating content from an outstanding cross-section of media companies and individuals.

The Gracies annually honor exemplary programming and individual achievement that is by, for and about women.

The AWMF leadership seeks qualified applicants to participate in person and/or virtually in the Gracies selection process, and by doing so are able to critique some of the year’s top programs and performances and network with industry peers.

Qualified candidates are typically individuals working in television, radio and digital media both in front of and behind the camera and microphone. Judges will be selected based on an evaluation of the criteria met along with resume/bio ensuring an appropriate balance of medias and experience.

Though it is not a requirement, we encourage and welcome Gracies judges to become members of AWM to stay connected with our community and enjoy a growing range of member benefits year-round.

While judging is a volunteer activity and no compensation is offered, fully participating in the judging process entitles you to one non-transferrable ticket half off regular ticket rate to either the Gracie Awards Luncheon OR Gracie Awards Gala.
