The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of electronic media, as well as individuals who have made contributions to the industry. The awards program also encourages the realistic and multifaceted portrayal of women in entertainment, news, features and other programs.

Each year, the Gracies attracts the best and brightest in radio, television, cable and new media. This year’s local, online public and student winners include: American Public Media’s Education and Poverty Series, Marquette University’s The Halo Project, iVillage’s Digital Publication, 50 Best-to-Worst States for Women, Classical KING FM 98.1 host Lisa Bergman, and KOMO-TV’s What Are the Chances? (See accompanying pages for a complete list of winners.)

“The power of these individuals and programs to both encourage and educate is truly inspiring,” stated Kay Olin, AWMF Chair. “We look forward to celebrating these incredible accomplishments and contributions to the media industry.”

The Gracies are presented by the AWM Foundation, the philanthropic arm of AWM which supports educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns and scholarships to benefit the public and women in the media. The Gracie Awards, established in 1975, honor programming and individuals of the highest caliber in all facets of radio, television, cable and web-based media, including news, drama, comedy, commercials, public service, documentary and sports.

“We are thrilled that the Gracies has become such an important industry event that this year we will celebrate the best media for, by and about women on both coasts,” said AWMF President, Erin M. Fuller. “The luncheon in New York is a special way to honor and recognize our local, online, public and student winners of the annual Gracies Awards.”
