The shortlist contains news outlets that embody exemplary journalistic standards and practices with a resulting impact on the community they serve. "The range of nominations we received for both large and small media highlight the many different ways news organizations are adapting to the dramatic changes sweeping over the industry," says Chris Waddell, jury chair and director of the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University. "The nominees are all examples of innovations in coverage and relations with audiences matched with a sharp focus on the traditional strengths of influential and distinctive journalism."
The five finalists in the large or national media category are:
The winners will be announced at the 17th Annual CJF Awards to be held at The Fairmont Royal York on June 4 in Toronto.
