One week left for CAJ Award entries

OTTAWA, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - Are you the journalist who will take the nation's top prize for investigative journalism? Or are you the journalist who broke the story and nabbed the best scoop of the year?

If you think you should be either of those, the deadline for the Canadian Association of Journalists 2010 Awards is in a week. The CAJ is looking to reward Canada's best investigative journalism published or broadcast during the 2010 calendar year, along with rewarding the country's best photojournalism, 'scoop,' daily journalism and print feature.

Winners in each category take home the respect and admiration of their media colleagues across the country, along with $500. Finalists in each category also take home the respect and admiration of their media colleagues, which is priceless.

You can't win if you don't apply though, and the deadline is a week away. All entries must be postmarked by Feb. 10, 2011.

The categories for 2010 are:
Investigative journalism
- Community Newspaper
