Awards were given out to members of the media who hold a mirror to their own industry for the public’s benefit. Among the awards passed out were the Fred Dressler Achievement Award given to Bloomberg News and accepted by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matthew Winkler. The i-3 Award for Impact, Innovation and Influence was given to Twitter and accepted by Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. "Twitter is not a triumph of technology, but a triumph of humanity," Stone stated during his acceptance speech. He commented on the global impact that Twitter has had and said that it was not the end but rather the end of the beginning for Twitter.

The Plaza added a touch of class that the awards deserved with beautiful table settings and a wonderful lunch for the guest and honorees.
