2021 Virtual Molly Awards Registration
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, though we are encouraged by the rate of vaccinations in our community, for the safety and welfare of everyone we have decided to hold the 2021 MOLLY National Journalism Prize Gala virtually, on Thursday, June 10, beginning at 6:30pm CST. The finalists of this year’s awards will be announced in mid-May, with the winners announced during the ceremony on June 10.
This remains a critical moment for the media industry and reader support is more important than ever. Our annual Molly Awards not only serve as an opportunity to celebrate the best in investigative and commentary journalism, but also serves as the Texas Observer’s largest fundraiser of the year.
Your commitment to independent, investigative journalism helps keep the Observer going, as we pursue collaboration—with other media outlets in Texas and nationally—over competition, stories that derive power from the recognition that people are experts in their own lives, and investigations that make data public and free for anyone to access.
By joining us for our 15th annual Molly prize event, you’re helping ensure this work continues. At each of these gift amounts donors will receive additional entry links to invite guests to join the virtual event, access to a VIP interview event this summer, and an invitation to a special in-person cocktail party to be held later this year.
