OTTAWA, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Fewer than five days remain until the
deadline for the 2012 Canadian Association of Journalists Awards
Entries are being accepted until midnight (ET), Feb. 8. Any entries not received and confirmed prior to that time will not be
accepted. The 2012 CAJ Awards program features Canada's top
investigative journalism award, the Don McGillivray Award.
Full information on how to enter the CAJ Awards, including how to submit
entries online is now posted on the Awards section of our website. The deadline for the Student Award of Excellence is Feb. 28, 2013.
New for this year, the CAJ is using an online system to process both the
submission of award entries and payment. Details, including
step-by-step instructions, are available on the CAJ website. If you run into questions or concerns with the website, please do not
hesitate to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - we are monitoring this account frequently during the day and evening.
"Journalists thrive on deadlines - including those for awards programs,"
CAJ president Hugo Rodrigues said. "We encourage all journalists who
had their work published or broadcast in 2012 to look at their body of
work, find and submit their best for the 2012 CAJ Awards.
"Don't let the deadline pass you by before realizing you should have
submitted your work."
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 at the Westin Hotel Ottawa on May 4, 2013. Registration for the
conference will open soon.
The CAJ is Canada's largest national professional organization for
journalists from all media, representing over 400 members across the
country. The CAJ's primary roles are to provide public-interest
advocacy and high-quality professional development for its members.
