At our Awards gala, the International Center for Journalists honors the achievements of brave colleagues whose outstanding news reports or media innovations have made a huge impact. For one inspiring evening, U.S. headliners join overseas journalists to showcase the power -- and the importance -- of quality news.

You can support our work by becoming a sponsor of DC's premier international media event. The Awards Dinner offers a great opportunity to meet 600 media luminaries from leading U.S. and international news organizations. Through exclusive sponsorships supporters gain high visibility, from prominent roles on the podium to special branding.

The funds raised help ICFJ to empower journalists to serve their communities by producing trustworthy coverage. We promote a professional journalism whose primary goal is to seek the truth.

We believe that better journalism leads to better lives.
