Five days left for CAJ Award entries

OTTAWA, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Haven't put the finishing touches on your submission for Canada's top prize in investigative journalism yet?

Great news-- you've got another few days. The deadline for submissions for the 2010 CAJ Awards has been extended. All submissions must now be postmarked by Feb. 15, 2011.

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 five days away.

We also, in conjunction with CNW Group, hand out a student award of excellence -- the deadline for that award is Feb. 28, 2011.

All award winners will be announced at the CAJ's 2011 convention at the Sheraton Hotel in Ottawa, May 13-15, 2011.
