The J-Source Canadian Newsperson of the Year award will honour a Canadian who has demonstrated excellence and had a positive impact on the quality of journalism in their community or across the country, perhaps innovating the way news is gathered and told, inspiring journalists, educators, and the Canadian public.
- We are honouring journalism during 2012, so the action, decision, advocacy, story, approach, judgement call etc. that provides the basis for the nomination must have occurred in the 2012 calendar year
- If the basis for a nomination refers to an internal decision, the information must be verifiable
- Please keep your nominations brief (150 words max), as we will be posting the list of nominees
- Nominations must be received by 11:59 p.m. PST on January 21, 2012
A jury convened by The Canadian Journalism Project (CJP) will judge the nominees and announce the shortlist for the J-Source Canadian Newsperson of the Year award in January.
