    “Not all awards have a clear meaning, but the Livingston does and it meant the world to me. To be recognized by the generation just ahead of you, and to know who had won the award before and where they had gone after was the best kind of encouragement anyone could get. More than ten years later I remain deeply grateful.”

    “The Livingston is unique in American journalism: the chance for those who have accomplished so much in the business they love to give the next generation a vote of confidence. The Livingston judges represent the top of the profession, but when they gather to celebrate the winners, the atmosphere is that of an extended family.”

    “Receiving the Livingston Award was a life changing experience for me. I was honored for my second film, 'Reinventing the Taliban', and felt reaffirmed in my commitment to the fields of journalism and film and their ability to impact social change and promote critical thinking. It cemented my belief that one's background is irrelevant as long as they produce work of a high quality. I feel privileged to be in such esteemed company”

    “I was awarded a Livingston after spending weeks living in a crack house to examine the drug trade’s impact on young children. To have some of the journalists I admire most reward that work encouraged me to follow my instincts wherever they took me. The Livingston Award is so dear to my heart. It’s the one award I keep in my office always within my line of sight.”
