Photo Auction

Making History


To honor the work of outstanding photojournalists and to support our programs, the International Center for Journalists has assembled a collection of magnificent images, called Making History, which will be auctioned at our Nov. 14 dinner.


The signed, framed photographs capture pivotal events in history. There’s Jimmy Carter, atop a car extending handshakes to an excited crowd, as he campaigns for re-election in 1980. First lady Hillary Clinton hosts a meeting with Princess Diana and other luminaries at the White House in 1996. And President Obama delivers a speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial two days before his inauguration in January 2009. Two Pulitzer Prize-winning photos are included: AP photojournalist Nick Ut’s classic, “The Terror of War,” featuring a screaming Vietnamese girl after a napalm attack in 1972; and Carol Guzy’s “War and Innocence, ” an image of refugees fleeing Kosovo in 1999. David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize-winner and Gerald Ford’s official photographer, offers a stunning portrait of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat amid the pyramids in 1977.

If you can’t make the dinner, you can still submit a bid by contacting Megan McKellar at mmckellar@icfj.org or 202-349-7637. ICFJ thanks the participating photojournalists for their generous donations. Proceeds will be used for programs that help shape the future of global journalism.

The 2016 Photo Auction is sponsored by the Associated Press
