Shortlist announced for the 2019 Awards

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the 2019 Write to End Violence Against Women Awards.

The competition, now in its 7th year, celebrates outstanding journalism and writing on gender equality and violence against women.

We were very excited to receive over 190 nominations this year from a wide range of papers and writers. The standard this year has been exceptional.

With every story on violence against women there is an opportunity to stop it happening again.

Responsible and sensitive writing on what violence against women is, what the warning signs are, and where people can seek help, is a key part of creating a world free from violence against women. It can save lives.

To read more about what we were looking for when we review submissions find our Media Guidelines here.
