National Journalism Impact Award
An Award for Journalists Having a Voice for Victims and Justice!
NWCAVE’s National Journalism Impact Award recognizes excellence in coverage of news of local, national, and international significance with a single award for the journalist who uses the power of media and his/her position to highlight the ongoing violence against others including women, children and animals. Whether domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, kidnapping or abductions, hate crimes or other despicable crimes and violence against human life, a story delivered without re-victimizing or re-exploiting the victim(s) or animal abuse related coverage are the elements in which we will consider for this award.
