Rural Women New Zealand Journalism Award entries open

Rural Women New Zealand Journalism Award entries open


Entries are now open for the Rural Women New Zealand Journalism Award 2014, which will be presented at the NZ Guild of Agricultural Journalists annual awards dinner in Wellington on 17 October.

The Rural Women NZ award encourages journalists to report on the achievements of women living and working in rural communities.

It’s a strategy that’s paid off, says Rural Women NZ national president, Wendy McGowan.

“Last year the Rural Women New Zealand Journalism Award was one of the most popular categories.”

Last year’s winners were Sarah Perriam and Tony Glynn of Rural Media, which runs the very successful on-demand channel Rural TV.

Entries in the RWNZ Journalism Award 2014 must be of two articles, radio broadcasts or television programmes broadly based on the theme of ‘rural women making a difference’.

This could be in the sense of community involvement, on farm, or in another rural-based business or activity.

Entries close 12 September 2014. Any New Zealand-based journalist or communicator is eligible to enter the award. The winner will receive $750.

Further information and entry forms are available on the Rural Women New Zealand website www.ruralwomen.org.nz.
