The Newseum
is encouraging news organizations to publish ads honoring the dozens of journalists who died last year while reporting the news.


In 2012, 84 journalists in 25 countries died while covering the news. On May 13, 2013, these journalists will be honored in a ceremony at the Newseum Journalists Memorial, which bears the names of 2,246 people who have died reporting the news since 1837.

The Newseum is leading a public awareness campaign in their honor and is encouraging newspapers, blogs and other publications to download and publish one of these ads on or around Monday, May 13.

We will recognize participating media outlets on with a link to each organization. Please let us know that your publication will be participating by writing to so we can include you.
