Immigration Journalism Award

Each year, the French-American Foundation recognizes the work of journalists published in French or English on the topic of immigration and integration, during a ceremony and panel discussion held in New York.

Since 2011, when the program was launched, the Immigration Journalism Award has recognized outstanding journalism, highlighting the important role journalists plays in enriching and informing the public debate on this complex and often controversial topic. One award is given for reporting in English, and the Prix TF1 is awarded for excellence in immigration coverage in French.
