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

Deadline: 28th of October 28, 2022

This prize honours outstanding radio programmes that cater to female listeners.

Winning radio programmes investigate and promote gender equality, for instance by sharing the perspectives and experiences of women, covering issues that are significant to women, or highlighting the contribution of men to gender equality. The award is given to the station staff, including the manager(s), producer(s), host(s), presenter(s), reporter(s), technician(s), and others who helped make this show possible.

A winning programme can cover any topic! In other words, the programme does not necessarily need to emphasise gender equality alone. You might submit an application with a programme focusing on agriculture, health, or a combination of these. No of the subject, it’s crucial that your programme supports women.
