Livingston Awards Sponsorship

Investing in the Future of Journalism


At a time when the spread of misinformation threatens our democracy, the need for rigorous, in-depth reporting is ever more critical. For more than 40 years, the Livingston Awards have honored journalists under the age of 35 for exceptional local, national and international reporting. Young journalists who pursue ambitious stories in the face of considerable pressure are especially deserving of our support.

The 2023 Livingston Award winners
will be honored on:

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 | Noon–2 pm
The Yale Club of New York City

Hosted by Ken Auletta of The New Yorker

As a sponsor of the Livingston Awards, you will join the best and brightest in standing up for the future of journalism. Winners will be joined by our Livingston Awards judges, including Audie Cornish, Matt Murray, Amna Nawaz, María Elena Salinas and Kara Swisher. Meet all of our judges in the video below and learn why they devote countless hours to the program and believe in its mission.

The Livingston Awards have spotted the early talent of tenacious reporters who became prominent voices and leaders in journalism. For David Remnick, Michele Norris, Ira Glass, Lydia Polgreen and many more, the Livingston Awards provided a career-changing boost when they were not well-known beyond their own newsrooms. Many past winners say the award came at a critical moment when they were considering how and if they could continue with their work. Even in a pandemic, the Livingston Awards have had a transformative effect, as our 2020 winners discuss in the video below.

There has never been a more critical time to affirm the role young reporters play in pushing the journalism industry – and our democracy – forward. Your sponsorship will help power our year-round program and support the next generation of journalists.
