OTTAWA, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Fewer than five days remain until the deadline for the 2012 Canadian Association of Journalists Awards program.
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 [email protected] - 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.
