For over 55 years, we have helped raise standards of journalism through training, consultancy and strategic advice.
Our vision is to ensure all people have an honest, factual account of what is really happening in the world.
We deliver positive change in media and communications as a way of improving public engagement and governance.
To support the achievement of the vision – through improving journalism and communication.
We manage a network of more than 200 media professionals, with cutting-edge skills, who are keen to share their knowledge. We work with media, governments, civil society, and commercial organisations wishing to sponsor excellence in communications.
Our annual reviews highlight just some of the foundation's most noteworthy activity from each year, from encouraging engaging journalism with impact that has created prize-winners across the globe, to inspiring business models to support independent media and providing high-quality training and consultancy to ensure the spread of the best contemporary media skills.
Crucial to our 2017 activity was the support of a younger generation of aspiring journalists.
In 2016 we were able to provide detailed external evidence of our achievements.
Turning point: in 2015, we had undertaken more large-scale projects than ever before
