Join The Seattle Globalist for the third annual Globie Awards September 26, 2015. The globies highlight our best writers and honor Seattle’s Globalist of the Year: a community member doing outstanding global work.
In just two years, the Globies has distinguished itself as one of the most dynamic events in Seattle. It’s an energetic, quirky, feel-good party. We promise you won’t be bored!
This year we’ve got a new location, and we’ll be celebrating Seattle’s global connections and talented media makers with Latin music and Cuban food at Club Sur. Join us for a night of dancing, drinks, and of course the famous Globie Awards photo booth!
All proceeds benefit Seattle Globalist media makers and youth.
Last year, 220 attendees packed Washington Hall to honor our five award recipients.
Era Schrepfer won Globalist of the Year; Irina Vodonos won for Community Journalism; Lael Henterly for Investigative Reporting; Atoosa Moinzadeh for Social Justice Reporting; Dacia Sáenz for International Reporting, and Aida Solomon for Youth Reporting.
