Honoring Washington’s Women in Journalism

Washingtonian and Story Partners kick off the White House Correspondents’ weekend by hosting our annual Washington Women in Journalism Awards. We’re proud to recognize our honorees:

  • Lifetime Achievement Award: Andrea Mitchell, NBC
  • Outstanding Journalist in Broadcast: Abby Phillip, CNN
  • Outstanding Journalist in Print: Ashley Parker, The Washington Post
  • Rising Star: Amanda Terkel, The Huffington Post

Women journalists play an invaluable role in the media industry and are some of the bravest, most caring, and smartest journalists I know.  However, they are often under recognized for their breakthroughs and contributions in our industry. That’s why we founded this event – to celebrate the success of some of those outstanding women journalists here in Washington D.C.
