ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2020

This year, ICFJ pays tribute to journalism excellence in ways you’ve never seen before. Join us for an inspiring gathering that you won’t want to miss. Together, we’ll honor the achievements of intrepid colleagues whose outstanding news reports and analyses are having tremendous impact.

COVID-19 prevents us from gathering in person. This year, our virtual tribute will take ICFJ’s Annual Awards Dinner from one ballroom in Washington, D.C., to the world. Register to attend our celebration of the vital role journalists play — especially now. And make sure to join the pre-show, starting at 7 pm ET.

Journalists often risk so much to bring us the news. That’s the case with our courageous honorees from Egypt and Russia — and certainly with U.S. reporters who told the story of the pandemic from inside hospitals and covered the protests for racial justice. We help them do their jobs during these unsettling times, and your support plays a crucial role.
