Who we are


Established by journalists and opinion-formers to facilitate rights of access for journalists, we deal with problems faced by journalists ranging from imprisonment at one extreme to censorship at the other.

What we do

The ICF also deals with issues in relation to xenophobia and disinformation, and has at its heart a concern for Media Ethics. It compiles and publishes a Media Ethics Code.

The Awards

The ICF council grants annual international media awards for best practice. They include the Peace Through Media awards for seasoned journalists who have made a seminal contribution to bettering understanding.
