The Newswomen's Club of New York

Established in 1922, The Newswomen’s Club of New York is the only professional organization exclusively for women journalists in the New York metropolitan area. Our membership includes women who work in newspapers, magazines, radio, television, photography and new media. As the news industry undergoes rapid change, we strive to uphold the values that are the hallmarks of good journalism, maintaining the public trust.

The club’s signature event is the annual Front Page Awards, which honor journalistic excellence by newswomen.. Established in 1937-38, the Front Page Awards are among the most prestigious in journalism and are unique in focusing on the contributions of women journalists.

The Newswomen’s Club of New York also holds an annual Spring Photography Auction that showcases the work of some of the best photojournalists in the news business. Proceeds are used to support the club’s  educational programs.

The club also holds programs and other events throughout the year, with a focus on supporting the work of women journalists, professional development and networking.
