CJF announces Excellence in Journalism Award finalists

Three daily newspapers are among the finalists in the large media category for the Canadian Journalism Foundation’s (CJF) 19th annual Excellence in Journalism Award. The shortlist recognizes Canadian news organizations that embody exemplary journalism with a resulting impact on the community they serve.

The Globe and Mail has been nominated for its Thalidomide stories; the Toronto Star has been nominated for stories on sexual assault victims in post-secondary schools and its coverage of the sexual abuse allegations against former CBC radio star Jian Ghomeshi; and the Winnipeg Free Press has been nominated for its three-part series titled City Beautiful: How Architecture Shaped Winnipeg’s DNA.

Globalnews.ca and French-language news magazine L’actualite are also nominated.

The winner in the large media category will be announced at the annual CJF Awards—celebrating 25 years of journalistic excellence—to be held at The Fairmont Royal York on June 3 in Toronto.
