2022 Deadline Club Awards
May 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$225 – $3300
The annual Deadline Club Awards Dinner returns to the Harvard Club of New York on Thursday, May 12, with Nobel laureate Maria Ressa.
The Deadline Club Awards recognizes the best journalism produced by journalists and media organizations based in New York. Winners compete for a coveted “Rube” statuette, designed by legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg. The statuette, designed in 1968, was Rube’s idea of a dead line—shown in three dimensions.
Those winners will be recognized on Thursday, May 12, 2022, at the historic and exclusive Harvard Club of New York City, 35 West 44th Street.
Reception begins at 6:30 p.m., with dinner beginning promptly at 7:30 p.m.
This will be a homecoming event for the Deadline Club and its award winners, as we have not hosted this event in person since May 2019. We look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying a fabulous night with you.
***Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours will be checked upon reception.***
The award ceremony will feature a live-streamed keynote from Maria Ressa, who last year was the first journalist in 80 years to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She will speak about her work in fighting disinformation, “fake news” and attempts to silence the free press.
Learn more about our speaker below:
Maria Ressa is co-founder, CEO, and executive editor of Rappler.com, an online news organization in the Philippines. In 2021, she was honored as co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for exposing abuses of power and authoritarianism under Philippine President, Rodrigo Duterte. She focused attention on Duterte’s murderous anti-drug campaign and documented how social media are being used to spread fake news, harass opponents and manipulate public discourse. In accepting the award, she said: “Without facts, you can’t have truth. Without truth, you can’t have trust. Without trust, we have no shared reality, no democracy.” Ressa has faced continual political harassment by the state, including her arrest on 10 charges related to her reporting and a 2020 conviction for cyber-libel that she is currently appealing. A journalist in Asia for more than 35 years, Ressa was previously a CNN bureau chief and investigative reporter, and was honored in 2018 as a Time “Person of the Year.” Her books include “Seeds of Terror: An Eyewitness Account of Al-Qaeda’s Newest Center of Operations in Southeast Asia” and the upcoming, “How to Stand Up to a Dictator.”
