Atlantic Journalism Awards call for entries



Entries are open for the Atlantic Journalism Awards. Journalists who had work published in the 2012 calendar year by an Atlantic Canadian media outlet are eligible to enter their stories and photographs.

There are 28 categories that honour excellence in a particular medium (print, television, radio, online, magazine) as well as beat reporting (arts, business and sports). The awards also include the Jim MacNeill New Journalist Award, which is open to new journalists who have worked in print, television or radio for fewer than three years that, as well as the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The awards will be given out at the Awards Dinner at the Halifax Mariott Harbourfront Hotel in Halifax, NS on Saturday May 11.

The deadline for entries is Monday, Feb. 4.

More information about the awards, including entry guidelines and submission instructions can be found on the AJA’s website

Comment Policy

J-Source invites comments on any content items or on any other topics relevant to journalism. Those posting comments are expected to adhere to standards of accuracy and fairness that would be recognized by those who practise, teach or study journalism.

  • Comments are restricted to registered users. You must register with your full first and last name in order to be eligible to comment.
  • Please communicate as effectively and intelligently as you would in a professional or academic forum, focusing on the issues at hand rather than the characters or characteristics of those involved.
  • This forum is intended for discussion of the craft of journalism, not of the issues of the day that journalists cover; please do not post story tips or press releases.
  • We moderate the forum for adherence to these standards of discourse, and reserve the right to decline any comment or restrict any user from commenting without giving reasons. Every effort is made to approve valid comments within 24 hours of submission.
