Submissions for the 2022 Michener Award, and for the two Michener Fellowships, close in one week!
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.
The Michener Awards Foundation also offers two fellowships, one in support of investigative reporting and one dedicated to the enrichment of journalism education. Each fellowship is for $40,000 and up to $5,000 in expenses.
The Michener – Deacon Fellowship for Investigative Reporting, supported through TD Bank Group, encourages excellence in journalism that serves the public interest through improvements in public policy, ethical standards, corporate governance or the lives of Canadians.
The Michener – L. Richard O’Hagan Fellowship for Journalism Education is dedicated to the advancement and enrichment of the education of Canadian journalists and journalism students, and is supported by BMO Financial Group. Learn more about Fellowship eligibility here.
Winners for both the 2021 and 2022 Michener Award cycles will be announced at the Michener Awards Ceremony in June 2023 at Rideau Hall. A gala will follow the afternoon ceremony. Further details about the ceremony will be available in the coming weeks.
The nominations for both the Award and the Fellowships are open until 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, February 17, 2023, and instructions for submitting a nomination are available on the website.
The Michener Awards Foundation look forward to receiving your submissions, and celebrating the incredible work of newsrooms across the country.
