Gracies Call for Entries Now Open


The Gracie Awards, presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF), has opened the call for entries for the 46th Annual Gracie Awards Gala and Gracie Awards Luncheon.

The AWMF has also locked in the Diamond Sponsor of the 2021 Gracies: it’s Ziploc Brand.

“We know the circumstances of this year have made production much more difficult, which is why we are more committed than ever to honoring the remarkable work that has been created, especially with the important milestone of AWM’s 70th Anniversary coming up next year,” says AWMF Executive Director Becky Brooks. “As our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Gracies enables the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation to deliver on its promise of furthering the connection, education and recognition of women in media, even during difficult times.”

Serving again as chairs for the 2021 Gracie Awards are Heather Cohen, EVP of talent-focused group The Weiss Agency; Annie Howell, Chief Communications Officer at Crown Media Family Networks; and Adult Contemporary radio consultant Mike McVay.
