Championing the work of today’s most dogged and diverse truth tellers

Pioneering British newspaperman Sir Harry Evans (1928-2020) was one of the giants of post-war journalism.

The award-winning work he spearheaded as editor of The Northern Echo, The Sunday Times and The Times set the gold standard for courageous investigative journalism. In 2002, he was voted the Greatest British Newspaper Editor of all time by his media peers.

For Sir Harry, trust in journalism was essential and the debasement of fact-based reporting was a serious concern for functioning democracy. To reignite Sir Harry’s values, we are creating a summit to champion the work of today’s investigative journalists.
