The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of media and entertainment, 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.
“The Gracie Awards recognize women who have created inspiring, intelligent and innovative media,” said 2014 AWMF Chair Kay Olin. “The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s signature event is a wonderful celebration of the important contributions women make to all areas of the media industry.”
