RISC training is provided free of cost to experienced, published freelance conflict journalists, and the proceeds from the Benefit Auction will go toward the training of more journalists.

The auction features a short program by Sebastian Junger and Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas, hors d'oeuvres and beverages, an work by 46 photographers, including Meiselas, the late Tim Hetherington, Richard Mosse, Roger Ballen, Michael Kamber, and Gillian Laub, among many others.
