The Society of Professional Journalists is a sponsor of this event, being held at The California Club in Los Angeles.
With the advent of the internet, social media, and 24/7 live news coverage, the media has evolved more than almost any other field over the last two decades. Misinformation is common, as online platforms have given the public unlimited access to information, as well as the means to disseminate it quickly and widely, no matter how accurate. Recognizing fact vs. fiction has become increasingly difficult.
Traditional news outlets are combatting misinformation by adhering to high standards and continuing to provide fact-based, nonpartisan information. But how will today’s journalists protect the integrity of the discipline amidst so many competing sources of news?
On Wednesday, June 14, join us for a conversation with L.A. Times Executive Editor Kevin Merida, moderated by Tracy Williams, CEO and President of Olmstead Williams Communications. During the lunch discussion, the two will discuss “The Future of Journalism” and shed light on how newspapers can continue to be a bastion of truth for the masses.
Join SPJ for the Sigma Delta Chi Awards virtual ceremony. Winners for the 2022 awards will be announced for the first time during the virtual awards presentation. The ceremony also celebrates student journalism with the announcement of the MOEy Best in Show Award recognizing the best student journalism in the country from SPJ’s Mark of Excellence Awards.
The SDX Awards are some of the most prestigious and coveted awards given to journalists. Judges choose the winners from nearly 1,500 entries. The SDX Awards date back to 1932, when the Society first honored six individuals for contributions to journalism. Now, more than 75 awards recognize the best in professional journalism in print/online, audio, television and more.

The Society of Professional Journalists Foundation presents the Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award to honor a person or persons who have fought to protect and preserve one or more of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.
Mr. Pulliam, who died in January 1999, was publisher of The Indianapolis Star and The Indianapolis News until his death and was well-known for consistently supporting activities which educated the public about First Amendment rights and values. The Foundation has established this annual award to honor those committed to the same goals and as a tribute to the professional contributions that he made to journalism.
Annually at the SPJ National Convention, the SPJ Foundation will honor an individual, group of individuals or organization with a $10,000 cash award and an engraved crystal. The honoree(s) also will receive transportation (airfare and two-night hotel stay) to the national convention.
