“The Globies felt like someone had gone to the trouble of inviting all my favorite people to a party that I never wanted to end. I left full. Full of amazing food. Full of fantastic conversation. Full of gratitude for the work of the awardees. And full of happiness that I live in a region that walks its global talk.”
– Anita Verna Crofts, Associate Director, UW Communication Leadership graduate program & Seattle Globalist board member

This year we’re honoring five Globalist contributors: Irina Vodonos, Lael Henterly, Atoosa Moinzadeh, Aida Solomon and Dacia Sáenz.

If you’re ready for the party of the year with Seattle’s globally-minded leaders, artists, and global storytellers, grab your tickets now because they are selling fast.

“I come from a country where journalists work under constant fear of threats, intimidation, violence and even death. For them, it is a profession that entails more risks than recognition. Having worked in that kind of an environment, writing for the Seattle Globalist and then receiving the Globie Award in recognition of my my work meant multitudes to me. I was honored as well as privileged to be recognized.”
– Muatasim Qazi, 2013 Globie Award winner
