The Martha Coman Front Page Award for Best New Journalist will go to Tammy Kim of Al Jazeera America. The Nellie Bly Front Page Award for Best Bylined Front Page Story will be shared by Sarah Ryley and Laura Bult of the New York Daily News.
The Marie Colvin Front Page Award for Foreign Correspondence will go to Rukmini Callimachi of The New York Times, and the Front Page Award for Newswoman of the Year will go to Julia Angwin of ProPublica for her coverage of the National Security Agency.
The Newswomen's Club of New York, established in 1922, is the only professional organization in the New York area dedicated to supporting newswomen. The Front Page Awards, established in 1938, help the Club fulfill its mission to promote exceptional work by women in the news business, provide networking opportunities, and support the highest standards of journalism.
