The Overseas Press Club of America is the nation’s oldest and largest association of journalists engaged in international news. Every year, it awards the most prestigious prizes devoted exclusively to international news coverage for an American audience.
Top editors of all major media companies attend the OPC’s annual awards dinner to network with colleagues and celebrate the work that journalists do covering the world. Foreign correspondents, photojournalists and freelancers fly to New York to collect their prizes.
Journalism has become an increasingly hazardous occupation, even as it has grown increasingly crucial to an ever more connected planet. The club’s mission is to uphold the highest standards in news reporting, advance the cause of press freedom, and help educate a new generation of journalists. It was founded in 1939 by nine foreign correspondents in New York City, and has grown to almost 500 members world-wide.
