Membership is open to non-profit media organizations that support investigative or data journalism.

Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism

PCIJ AB700

The Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism is an independent, nonprofit media agency that specializes in investigative reporting. It was founded in 1989 by nine Filipino journalists who realized, from their years on the beat and at the news desk, the need for newspapers and broadcast agencies to go beyond day–to–day reportage. Since its founding, PCIJ has published over 1,000 investigative reports and over 1,000 other stories in major Philippine media, produced five full–length documentaries, scores of TV documentaries, and over two dozen books. The PCIJ also organizes training seminars for news organizations across Southeast Asia. The PCIJ has won over 150 major awards, including nine National Book Awards.
