The Canadian Press wins national journalism award

The Canadian Press won the Excellence in Journalism award in the national media category May 28 at the Canadian Journalism Foundation Awards.

“The jury was particularly impressed with the quality of The Canadian Press,” said Donna Logan, chairwoman of the selection jury.

“We were particularly impressed with how The Canadian Press has rebounded from the loss of a major client by re-energizing itself both journalistically and businesswise, by expanding into new multimedia avenues while maintaining a solid core of national and regional news.”

The Excellence in Journalism award was described as one of two top prizes of the night.

“We have created a culture of innovation in our newsrooms and our staff, new recruits and veterans alike, have embraced it,” Eric Morrison, president of The Canadian Press, said in accepting the award. “But some things never change, like the need for thorough reporting based on solid sources; insightful storytelling and compelling video and photojournalism ? all based on strong editors.”

The Canadian Press is the No. 1 supplier of online content in Canada and has been a trailblazer in online video journalism. The Telegram from St. John’s, N.L., won the other major prize, the Excellence in Journalism award in the small, medium or local market category.

Established in 1990, the Canadian Journalism Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in Canadian journalism. It recognizes outstanding journalistic achievements and promotes dialog among media, business, government, public policy groups and universities.
