Immigration Journalism Awards Luncheon & Panel Discussion


The French-American Foundation is finishing the first year of its Immigration Journalism Fellowship and Award program. This unique initiative, developed with the support of the Ford Foundation, draws focus on one of the most important political issues of our time by encouraging journalism that provides in-depth portrayals of immigration and its impact on the lives of people and communities across the globe.

During the last year, the Foundation has supported 12 journalists in their efforts to produce groundbreaking work on a diverse range of topics pertaining to immigration and integration in several regions of the world. You can learn more about our Fellows here.

For the second part of this program, we honored two journalists who produced exceptional works in 2011 with the Foundation's Immigration Journalism Award.

To both recognize our Fellows and present our Award Winners, the Foundation hosted an Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, November 7, at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, in Times Square. The event featured an address by Sylvie Kauffmann, executive editor of Le Monde, as well as a panel discussion with our Journalism Fellows and Award winners.
