Awards Season in Journalism

It’s the time for annual awards in news media, and The Tyee has no shortage of nominations: two for the National Magazine Awards, eight for the Digital Publishing Awards, three for the Canadian Association of Journalists Awards and one for general excellence from the Canadian Journalism Foundation.

DPA nominations include a feature on early Chinese racism in Canada, personal essays on finding meaning in the cold winter months and more. A special report on Indigenous racism in health care and local impacts of B.C.’s devastating wildfires received nominations from the CJAs.

Stay tuned to see who brings home the fish! The awards shows air from May 28 to June 7.
