Awards

 
  • In the past decade alone, The FP Group has been nominated for eight National Magazine Awards, winning six – three for its print publication, and three for its digital publication at ForeignPolicy.com. FP is the only independent magazine that has won consecutive digital national magazine awards every year since it was established in 2009.

“Serious without being pompous, deep without being self-indulgent, Foreign Policy is an essential modern guide to global politics, economics, and ideas for people who want to know what’s really happening in an increasingly complicated world.”
