Shifa Gardi Award


Shifa Gardi Award

Rudaw Media Network is marking the second anniversary of the death of prominent Kurdish journalist Shifa Gardi.

At the ceremony on February 25, 2019 in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, Rudaw Media Network will give an award to an international female journalist who has faced risks to her life and reported from hostile environments.

The Shifa Gardi Award is a tribute to that brave journalist and all other reporters killed while doing the honorable work of reporting the truth.

Shifa Gardi (1987-2017) was killed by a roadside bomb in Mosul while uncovering the story of one of ISIS’s most notorious mass-graves.

Local and foreign journalists, diplomats, government officials and dignitaries will attend the ceremony.
