Spring is in the air…at least it's trying to be.  AWM-DFW comes alive in the spring with our biggest events and we are excited!!

The Awards of Excellence Gala will be held Thursday, April 18, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Reunion Tower (more details in the calendar of events section).  This is a special night; it brings people from all facets of the media industry together to honor the best of the best from TV, radio, out of home, digital and Dallas based ad agencies.  And, with that said, the 2018 Awards of Excellence nominees are in! 

Please follow the link for the list of Nominees.

Congratulations to you all; we cannot wait to celebrate with you!

Along with Gala, the spring also brings the Student Media Tour This year’s tour was a  huge success thanks to the dedication of our fabulous media hosts and committee.  We had over 80 students register from over 10 colleges /universities.  Our committee conducted three tours simultaneously throughout the metroplex.  Each tour offered media students a chance to tour radio, television,  advertising and sports marketing facility and learn about career opportunities and summer internships.

Thank you our outstanding media hosts!

Tour 1: The Richards Group, WFAA, Cumulus Media, TM Advertising, Weber Shandwick PR, Mavericks Basketball
Tour 2: SIX Flags Marketing, Radio Ranch, Balcom Agency, NBC Universal, Texas Rangers Baseball
Tour 3:  The Loomis Agency, FOX Sports SW, Dallas Cowboys-The STAR, iHeartMedia

We appreciate the tireless efforts from our tremendous committee to make this event happen!
This year, The Judy Miller Student Media Tour Scholarship of $2000 will be awarded to a student at the Awards of Excellence Gala.


AWM-DFW appreciates the support of these two events as it allows us to fulfill AWM’s mission of advancing the impact of women, young professionals and students who endeavor to work in media.  Here’s to you and your support!
