Last night, ThinkProgress accepted the journalism award for Best Blog from the Sidney Hillman Foundation. The event was held at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in Manhattan, where we were honored to share the stage with the other award recipients, including PBS’s Bill Moyers, Los Angeles Times photojournalist Luis Sinco, and the Writers Guild of America.

The New Yorker’s Hendrik Hertzberg presented ThinkProgress’s Faiz Shakir and Amanda Terkel with the award, who received it on behalf of the team. Afterward, Faiz gave a speech about the importance of blogs in challenging those in power. Watch it (two parts):

Below are a few photos from the evening:
