American freelance reporter Austin Tice, detained in Syria since 2012, will receive one of the club's most prestigious honors.
The club will give Tice a John Aubuchon Press Freedom Award at its annual awards dinner July 29. The Aubuchon award recognizes those whose work has demonstrated the courage that lies at the heart of a free press.
Tice joins Jason Rezaian, a Washington Post reporter detained in Iran, as recipients of the Club's domestic freedom of the press award this year. The club announced Rezaian's award on March 12. The Club also recognizes a foreign journalist annually.
