The Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award encourages photojournalists in the early stages of their careers to apply for a unique opportunity to cover breaking news and top sports and cultural events for six weeks at The Canadian Press head office in Toronto. The award is open to Canadian photojournalists who have been in the business fewer than five years. The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) and CP launched the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award in 2009 in memory of award-winning photojournalist Tom Hanson.
The submission deadline for this year’s award is January 8, 2015.
Award criteria and application instructions, along with the online application form, are available on the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award website.
The winner of the 2015 Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award will be announced in February. The award will be formally presented at the annual Canadian Journalism Foundation Awards on June 3, 2015 at The Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
