Folio Awards Recognize Powerful Stories & Storytellers

Long Island’s biggest media event, the Folio Awards recognize the best in news and social media, and bring out the who’s who in news media today. All are eligible to enter the awards, and entries are due in December.
See highlights here from the Folio Awards luncheon held in March. The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman was the featured speaker, carrying on a tradition of notable headliners that have included Dan Rather, Bob Woodruff, Helen Thomas, Al Roker, Michael Wolff, Rita Cosby and many more.
The Folio Awards are adjudicated by media-savvy community leaders to reward exceptional journalism that shines a light on news we, the public, need to know. The program is made possible by generous sponsors who care about our community.
