The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) has announced the three finalists for its inaugural CJF Innovation Award.? At a time when news organizations are facing unprecedented challenges and demands for change, this award recognizes innovations that have a demonstrated impact in advancing the quality of journalism done by an individual news organization.
Montreal daily newspaper La Presse has been nominated for its free tablet app, designed to address changing media consumption habits, attract younger audiences and boost declining advertising revenues. CBC News and Emergent, a website founded by Craig Silverman, are also nominated for the award.
The first CJF Innovation Award winner will be announced at the annual CJF Awards on June 3.
