The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) has announced that the deadline to submit entries for the 46th Annual Gracie Awards at the regular rate has been extended until January 21. AWMF is also offering a further extended deadline of January 28 at an additional cost. The Gracie Awards celebrate programming and individual achievement by, for and about women in radio, television and digital media. Submissions from all facets of media are encouraged.

Journalists have continued to work on the front lines to provide coverage of the unprecedented events in the first two weeks of 2021. Due to the timeliness of the coverage, AWMF has added ten new categories specifically dedicated to January 2021 Frontline Special Reports for air talent and programming in radio, television and digital media. A full list of the new categories can be found here.

"We know the circumstances of the past year 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," said AWMF Executive Director Becky Brooks. "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 turbulent times."

The Gracie Awards Gala, previously scheduled for May, has been postponed to September 20, and the Gracie Awards Luncheon, previously scheduled for June, has been postponed to July 21. The Gala will still be held at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills, A Four Seasons Hotel, and the Luncheon will still be held at Cipriani 42nd St in New York, NY.

The 2021 Gracie Awards entry eligibility air dates for the traditional categories are from January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020. New categories are exclusive to January. Entry details, including pricing and updated categories, can be viewed here.
