2013 Exceptional Merit in Media Awards (EMMAs)

Printer-friendly view of this page.

The Exceptional Merit Media Awards (EMMAs) were created by the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) to honor and reward journalists and media outlets in radio, television, print and the internet that inform and educate the public about critical issues that impact women’s lives. The EMMAs are presented at an awards ceremony and reception, also known as “the EMMAs,” hosted by NWPC.

Over the past 27 years, the EMMAs have been presented for outstanding coverage of women’s issues in media.  Recent recipients include Sheryl WuDunn for Half the Sky, Glamour Magazine’s “Meet Generation (R)x” and Ms. Magazine’s “The Scandal of Military Rape.”  The winners encompass all types of issues of importance to women and often bring to light those issues that might tend to get glossed over or slip through the cracks of mainstream coverage. 

NWPC appoints a panel of celebrity, academic and journalist judges who review and judge the entries and select the winners from each category.   

The 2013 EMMAs will be held on Thursday, October 24th in New York, NY at The New York Institute of Technology (NYIT).

We have 34 wonderful nominations for this year's awards.  Click on the link below to learn more about the entries:
