The Canadian Association of Journalists announces 2020 awards finalists

The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) announced the finalists for its 2020 awards program earlier this week.

Winners in each category will be announced at a special live online event on May 29. In the coming weeks, finalists will receive information on how to participate in this event, which will also be publicly streamed via the CAJ’s Facebook page.

“The past year has been one like no other in Canadian journalism,” says CAJ president Brent Jolly. “To be able to recognize the exceptional work produced over the past year on World Press Freedom Day is a fitting tribute to all the Canadian journalists who have had to endure incomparable challenges, during a global pandemic, to tell stories that need to be told.”
