2017 Canadian Hillman Prize now open

The Call for Entries for the 2017 Canadian Hillman Prize is now open. The entry deadline is January 13, 2017. There is no limit to the number of entries one publication or outlet may enter.

The Canadian Hillman Prize honours excellence in journalism in service of the common good. The Hillman Prize seeks out investigative reporting that draws attention to social or economic injustice and hopefully leads to corrective measures.

The 2017 Hillman Prize will be given to a reported story or series published or broadcast in 2016. Eligible entries include reporting in newspapers, magazines and online, as well as television and radio, tablets and multimedia. Entries must have been published in Canada and been widely accessible to a Canadian audience. Self-published work is not eligible.

There is no fee to enter.

The winner(s) of the 2017 Canadian Hillman Prize will be announced in March and be awarded travel to receive a $5,000 prize and certificate at a reception in Toronto on March 30, 2017.
