Photojournalist Lynsey Addario receives 2022 Courage in Journalism Award
The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) announced the recipients of its 32nd annual Courage in Journalism Awards, which honor women journalists who show remarkable persistence and bravery within news media. This year's honorees include Changemaker Talent speaker Lynsey Addario, a veteran photojournalist currently working with The New York Times.
The Courage in Journalism Awards are announced amid heightened global tensions around the world, including Russia's war on Ukraine. These awards recognize the women journalists at the frontlines of these challenges who are intrepid in their commitment to reporting.
"This year's awardees have persevered in the face of extreme dangers, including police intimidation, censorship, captivity, and the trauma of documenting war crimes," said IWMF Executive Director Elisa Lees Muñoz. "These women bear witness to some of the world's darkest and most difficult moments; it is an honor to recognize their drive to report on truths not often seen, and appreciate how those stories affect our news landscape today."
