This year, ICFJ's photo auction features riveting photos from National Geographic. The collection, called Visions and Visionaries: The World Through the Eyes of National Geographic Photographers, is a welcome reminder of our world's bounty, creativity and inspiration as we grapple with a devastating pandemic. From stunning landscapes in the West to Martin Luther King Jr. during the March on Washington, the images reveal nature's glory as well as the best of human achievement.

Our auction concludes at 10:00 PM EDT Oct. 5 following the ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2020. We welcome you to join the Tribute at 7:30 pm as we honor three outstanding journalists. We also urge you to tour our 3D gallery now and place a bid on your favorite photo. See bidding information here. Photos (unframed) come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Donations will be used to help ICFJ provide valuable programs for journalists worldwide. A portion is tax-deductible.

Check out our 3-D gallery. You can place a bid by clicking the tab the bottom right of the photo or on the bid tab in the description box. You can view the entire collection here

We are grateful to our sponsor National Geographic for donating these lovely photos.


Note from Susan Goldberg, Editor in Chief of National Geographic and Editorial Director of National Geographic

National Geographic is honored to donate photographs to the International Center for Journalists for its auction during the ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2020. The images, made by outstanding National Geographic photographers, come from two of our books: "America the Beautiful: A Story in Photographs" and "Women: The National Geographic Collection."

Supporting the work of ICFJ is more essential than ever. Press freedom is eroding and political and economic pressures are forcing many news organizations to downsize or close - at the same time journalists are covering the world's most important stories, including a global pandemic. ICFJ helps by providing resources and training. If 2020 has done anything, it has been to make clear that journalism is a pillar of informed, democratic societies. We must make sure it flourishes.
