IAWRT 35th Biennial Conference


Please put this date in your diary: IAWRT’s 35th Biennial Conference will be held at the Lido Hotel in Casablanca, Morocco from October 24th – 27th.

We had scheduled the conference for Sharm el Sheik, but had to look for an alternative venue following disturbances in Egypt. Please note the dates have also changed as the original dates fell on a religious holiday in Morocco.

The theme of the conference remains: Confronting adversity: Women in Media in conflict and crisis. The conference will be co-hosted with our local  partners  “Le re’seau des Femmes Journalistes” and supported  by UNESCO.

More information – including travel, conference program and registration fees – will be emailed and also posted shortly on the IAWRT website:  www.iawrt.org.

Please email [email protected]  by Friday 13 September 2013 if you are funding yourself so that we know how many people will be attending. We will try to keep costs to a minimum so as many people as possible can attend.

Besides the four days of stimulating discussions, workshops and other activities, we will have the Biennial Gala Dinner and presentation of the IAWRT International Radio and Television Awards for Excellence in Documentary Making. The competition celebrates outstanding documentaries made by women and are open to all female producers, directors and journalists working with radio, television, web and film documentaries anywhere in the world.

The Award for the winner in each category is US $1 000. Entries close on October 4th 2013.
