Write to End VAW Awards 2014
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Write to End Violence Against Women Awards, which recognises and rewards quality writing on violence against women in Scotland, nominations are now open for 2014.
Journalists, bloggers and students are invited to submit examples of published work for consideration for the three award categories (Best Article, Best Blog, and Best Student Article). Third parties are also invited to nominate work that they feel represents quality VAW reporting in Scotland, as well as shaming bad examples of VAW journalism for the award’s Wooden Spoon award.
Nominations can be submitted through the awards website: www.writetoendVAW.com
Winning articles will be chosen by a panel of experts including journalists, writers and those working in the violence against women field. The deadline for submissions is 01/10/14, with the winners being announced at parliamentary reception on December 10th 2014 coinciding with the 16 Days of Action To Eliminate Violence Against Women, which takes place between the 25th of November and 10th of December.
