Awards Program

AWM-DFW hosts the annual Awards of Excellence Gala in the Spring when local media professionals are nominated by their peers and awarded for their outstanding reputation in the industry.  This recognizes stellar work in “unsung” but important job categories such as media selling, media buying and media management.  Each year AWM-DFW also recognizes one outstanding individual for the Silver Award of Excellence, at Gala for a lifetime achievement award.

Students in Media

AWM-DFW hosts an annual Student Media Tour each spring where students have the opportunity to visit area busineses who offer internships in the Media field. 

Each year, AWM-DFW will award two $5,000 scholarships in the names of  Irene Runnels, a distinguished and respected Dallas broadcaster and Paula McStay, a former Fort Worth advertising executive. As part of the Student Media Tour one $2000 Essay scholarship is awarded in the name of Judy Miller, who was an outstanding and treasured advertising executive that served in the DFW Metroplex.
