Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award
Each year Exceptional Women in Publishing (EWIP) selects an accomplished woman to receive the Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award. We select someone for this honor who has achieved prominence in her career, has made extraordinary contributions to publishing, and has demonstrated success and leadership in nontraditional and/or exceptional ways. All recipients of the honor, beginning with Gloria Steinem in 1999, are listed below.
Nominations for the 2014 EWIP Award are still being accepted. Read the nomination criteria and submit your candidate for consideration. For additional information about the award and nomination process, contact the Nomination Committee Chair, Linda Ruth, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
