TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - With the deadline only a week away, The Canadian Journalism Foundation encourages print, online and broadcast media from across the country to apply for its Excellence in Journalism Award.

This coveted award celebrates a news organization that embodies exemplary journalistic standards and practices with a resulting impact on the community it serves. Winners in two categories are selected:
1) Large or national media
2) Small or local media

Past award recipients in the large media category include The Winnipeg Free Press, The Current (CBC Radio), Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, The Canadian Press and CTV News. In the small media category, The Tyee, the Vancouver Observer, CBC Manitoba, Metroland Durham Region and The Telegram were among those embodying exemplary journalistic standards and practices.

The award is one of journalism's major awards and is the only one given to a journalistic organization for overall extraordinary performance. A shortlist will be announced in April, with the winner to be announced at the 17th Annual CJF Awards (#CJFawards) in Toronto at The Fairmont Royal York on June 4.

The deadline for submissions is February 28, 5:00 p.m. EST.

You can apply using our online form.
