Newsweek editor wins IWMF Courage in Journalism Award

Janine di Giovanni has been awarded the 'Courage in Journalism' award.


di Giovanni was given the award by the International Women's Media Foundation, an organisation based in Washington.

The IWMF is dedicated to strengthening the role of women in journalism worldwide.

IWMF executive director, Elisa Lees Munoz, said “These courageous journalists have faced seemingly insurmountable security threats and personal challenges in reporting on global issues and often, their impact on women. It is an honour to celebrate their commitment to press freedom and their service to other women in their industry with our annual Courage Awards.”

di Giovanni began working for Newsweek in October 2013, and is based in Paris.

She has recently visited war torn Syria, and written extensively about the country.

Her latest article about Syria, entitled "The morning they came for us: dispatches from Syria" was published earlier in 2016.

Global editor-in-chief of Newsweek, Jim Impoco, said “Janine is one of the most passionate reporters I have ever worked with, always determined to shed light on the human suffering of those caught up in conflict and disaster. At a time when journalists are targets, no one exhibits more courage than this lovely, talented, informed and ever curious person we are proud to have as part of our team at Newsweek.”
