The Frontline Club Awards are given annually in recognition of outstanding journalism. In 2012 the Frontline Club Awards were divided into four categories: Print | Broadcast | Photojournalism | Tribute.
All the awards seek to acknowledge journalistic integrity, courage and independence of spirit. The Frontline Club Tribute Award is given to recognise lifetime achievements of a journalist or work that has not received the acclaim it deserves. Frontline Club members nominate finalists and the winners are selected by a panel of judges drawn from the Club’s membership. The panel of judges includes: Jon Lee Anderson, Jeremy Bowen, Patrick Cockburn, Carlotta Gall, Gary Knight, Allan Little, Seamus Murphy and Vaughan Smith.
The 2012 awards, sponsored by Vodafone and Canon, were presented by Jon Snow at the Frontline Club on Thursday 25 October. The winners in each category were as follows:
Winners received lifetime membership of the Frontline Club, a prize form our sponsors and their names are added to the plaque in the members clubroom.
