The International Press Academy (IPA) is an association of professional entertainment journalists, representing both domestic and foreign markets in print, television, radio, cable and new media outlets. The academy was founded in 1996 by Mirjana Van Blaricom. All full-time entertainment journalists are eligible to join; membership is open to journalists listed in the MPAA directory and to those working journalists who submit at least six entertainment-related clips to be considered by the board.
The IPA annually recognizes achievements in the fields of cinema, television and new media through the Satellite Awards (originally known as the Golden Satellite Awards). These awards are covered by entertainment industry journals such as The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.
Special achievement awards presented by the IPA include the Mary Pickford Award (for outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry), the Auteur Award (to honor filmmakers whose vision and artistic control are reflected in their films), and the Nikola Tesla Award (in recognition of visionary achievements in filmmaking technology).
