Event description
A night to celebrate great journalism—and the people who make it.

About this Event

Begun in 1994, the Community Media Awards honor storytelling that centers Chicago's people. This is a night for community leaders, advocates, journalists and Public Narrative partners to come together and celebrate the stories that made a difference in our lives.

The Studs Terkel Award is given to Chicago reporters, editors, producers, videographers and photographers who exemplify the values of Studs Terkel’s journalism, by taking risks in covering social issues.

The Uplifting Voices Award honors an individual—journalist or otherwise—who elevates the voices of people in Chicago communities.

The Ripple Effect Award is granted to a journalist anywhere in the U.S. whose work has had an impact in Chicago and beyond.

Award recipients will be announced soon!

This is also Public Narrative's big fundraiser of the year! There’s no ticket cost this year, which means more people will be able to attend the awards than ever.
