Los Angeles Press Club

Today there is increasing corporate pressure to deliver the cheapest form of “surface news.” Less and less money is budgeted for investigative, in-depth reporting and storytelling. So, we have chosen to celebrate the films that bring us the deeper stories – below the superficial – stories that reveal corruption or injustice or criminality and sometimes even of human accomplishments and triumphs.

The Veritas Award honors movies based on or inspired by true stories and real people, and this year we have selected 12 outstanding films for our members to choose from. Click here to cast your vote!

Over four days, journalists will learn about older workers and the labor market; new models for retirement; the future of Social Security and retirement savings; the gig economy; workforce discrimination; and how workers’ health impacts all of that. They’ll also learn what other countries are doing that the U.S. isn’t.

The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues.
