by | Aug 11, 2022

National Press Club President Jen Judson today announced the winners of the prestigious National Press Club Journalism Awards. The investigative powerhouse ProPublica won one award for consumer journalism and helped two other organizations win prizes in the National Press Club journalism contest.

PBS/Frontline won two awards – including an Arthur Rowse award for coverage of Filipino journalist Maria Ressa and her staff in the run-up to an election in the Philippines. PBS/Frontline won an Edwin M. Hood award in a joint effort with ProPublica called ‘Massacre in El Salvador.’

National Public Radio’s All Things Considered won breaking news for its coverage of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

The Miami Herald won consumer journalism-newspapers in a partnership with ProPublica. ProPublica won for its investigation of the nation’s food safety system.

Several of the winners focused on issues related to the 2020 elections. J. Scott Applewhite of The Associated Press won for his dramatic photography from the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Jen Wieczner of Fortune Media won the Lee Walczak award for ‘Dominion Voting: Big Lies vs. Big Lawsuits.’

A new category this year is the Nell Minow Award for Cultural Criticism, won by the Los Angeles Times for its close look at the Latino ‘cultural zeitgeist.’

The awards dinner will be held at the National Press Club on Wednesday, August 31. The event will start at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31 starting with a reception in the Holeman Lounge followed at 7 p.m. with dinner and program in the ballroom.

The event will also honor the late Al Jazeera Correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh with the 2022 President’s Award. The President’s award is given at the discretion of the President of the National Press Club.
