OTTAWA, Jan. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - The Canadian Association of Journalists reminds journalists that only a week remains to submit entries for the 2013 CAJ Awards program, featuring Canada's top investigative journalism award, the Don McGillivray Award.

"The CAJ awards program allows us to celebrate the best in Canadian journalism across all media," CAJ president Hugo Rodrigues said. "We want to recognize your best work from 2013, but we can only do that if you enter it for consideration."

The CAJ Awards finalists will be announced in late March or early April, with the winners announced at the CAJ conference banquet and awards gala, part of the 2014 CAJ conference in Vancouver from May 9-10.
