In the Red division, nominees include CanadianLiving.ca, Canadian Art and Maclean’s who lead that division with the most nominations. (Maclean’s is also the only nominee in the Best News Coverage category.)

In the Blue division, those racking up the most nominations include Sparksheet, IT World Canada, University Affairs, and the University of British Columbia School of Journalism. UBC’s nominations stem from the project that Duncan McCue’s Reporting in Indigenous Communities class produced, The Thunderbird, and professor Alfred Hermida’s blog. But it isn’t the only journalism school to garner noms – the Ryersonian, out of the Ryerson School of Journalism, is nominated in the Best News Coverage and Best Use of Social Media categories.

Finally, in the Green division, the Toronto Star leads with 14 nominations. Also receiving multiple nominations is The Globe and Mail, CBC, The Tyee, Huffington Post, The Grid and the National Post.
