The June Andrews Award for Women’s Leadership in Media honours women who are making an outstanding journalistic contribution to gender equality and the visibility of women in society – both in Australia and on a global scale.

It celebrates reporting that demonstrates notable innovation, enterprise or courage in raising awareness of women’s experiences and perspectives, and reflects the significance of media coverage in altering perceptions, challenging stereotypes and fighting misinformation.
