The next annual dinner of the White House Correspondents’ Association will be on April 27, 2024.


Our annual dinner is our main source of revenue to finance all of our work, including support of the journalists working to cover the president, events and programs to educate the public about the value of the First Amendment and a free press, and scholarships to help the next generation of journalists.


Scholarships for promising journalism students play an important part in the associations’ mission. Read about the talented recipients who were honored and learn about our expanded scholarship program.


We are proud to sponsor several prestigious professional journalism awards that highlight our colleagues’ significant accomplishments in the field. The call for entries goes out in January, and awards are presented in the spring at the annual dinner.


Only news organizations with WHCA members are eligible to purchase tickets. Applications for membership must be submitted by February 1 and approved by March 1 to qualify that person’s outlet to buy dinner tickets that year.

Auctions and raffles of WHCA dinner tickets designed to raise money for other organizations or for commercial purposes are against the policy of the organization.
