ICFJ is celebrating its 40th anniversary. To mark this occasion, we’re reaching out to journalists who have taken part in ICFJ programs over the years and asking you to share the impact of your experience with ICFJ. We’ll use your stories in a campaign highlighting our network and impact over four decades.

If ICFJ has helped you as a journalist, we’d be grateful if you would take the time to tell us about it. Please fill out the short form below. Your email address will not be shared with anyone. Because our goal is to highlight the voices of our network, we ask that you provide original responses only. Those generated by AI will not be featured.
About yourself

We’re building an archive of photos of ICFJ network members. If you’re comfortable doing so, please upload a photo(s) of yourself we can use with your story and/or other ICFJ publicity materials. A headshot or photo of you working in the field would be great.
