While this year’s news cycle continues to be dominated by the pandemic, each newsroom and each reporter has worked tirelessly to bring a personal, intimate connection to the story, while ensuring Canadians have all the up-to-date and most accurate information possible to keep us all safe.
I recognize that the day-to-day often takes precedence over thinking about recognition and applying for prizes. However, I encourage you to look back over the past year and submit those truly unique, in-depth and impactful investigations for recognition.
Michener Award submissions are judged for their professionalism, their impact on the public, and the degree of arms-length public benefit that is generated. Winners come from newsrooms big and small. As president of the Michener Foundation, it would be my pleasure to see a nomination come from your newsroom this year. The nominations are open until Friday, February 18, 2022, and instructions for submitting a nomination are available on our website here.
Once again, thank you for all that you are doing to keep us safe and informed. We look forward to receiving your submissions, and celebrating the incredible work of newsrooms across the country.
All the best,
Pierre-Paul Noreau, President of the Michener Award Foundation
