News organizations that foster originality, show courage and ensure accuracy—with a resulting impact on the community they serve—are encouraged to apply for the annual Canadian Journalism Foundation Excellence in Journalism Award. The deadline for submissions is February 28.
Since 1996, the Canadian Journalism Foundation has celebrated news organizations that embrace ideals of journalistic excellence—also including independence and accountability—with its annual Excellence in Journalism Award. Winners, since 2007, are selected in two categories: 1) large or national media outlet and 2) small or local media outlet. Last year’s winners were the Winnipeg Free Press and The Tyee.
