Journalists giving greater profile to women’s equality issues are encouraged to apply for The Landsberg Award, presented by The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) in association with the Canadian Women’s Foundation. The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 8, 2015, 5:00 p.m. Now in its second year, this award recognizes a working journalist (employed or freelance) doing exceptional research, analysis and writing through a gender lens about women’s equality issues in Canada. The recipient will receive a $5,000 prize from the Canadian Women’s Foundation. Journalists working in print, broadcast and online news reporting are eligible to apply.
The award is named after Michele Landsberg—award-winning Canadian journalist, author, social activist and feminist—to acknowledge the tremendous impact she had as an advocate and role model for all women in Canada.
