TORONTO, March 20 /CNW/ - Only one week remains for rookie journalists to
submit their applications for The Canadian Journalism Foundation's Greg Clark
Award. The deadline for applications is March 28, 2008.
The Greg Clark Award is unique in Canadian journalism, designed to offer
rookie journalists a chance to gain insight and meet key decision-makers on
their beats. The successful applicant(s) will get an opportunity to spend up
to a week observing the inner workings of an organization not usually
accessible to the working journalist.
Megan Wennberg, the 2007 recipient, spent one week in Iqaluit with CBC
and News/North. "Summing up my time in Iqaluit and how this experience
benefited me is no easy task," says Megan. "The Arctic sharpened my senses and
my brain. It's an indelible place." You can read her complete story and those
from other past winners at the CJF website award page:
If you know any young journalists deserving of an opportunity like this,
please encourage them to apply. We are looking for proposals of no more than
two pages outlining how such a professional development opportunity would
expand their knowledge of their beat and help them in their daily work. The
winner(s) will be honoured at the CJF's 11th Annual Awards Gala, to be held
this year at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto on May 28, 2008.
The deadline for submissions is March 28, 2008.
