Attention, journalists, editors, and awards coordinators:

The Sidney Hillman Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Canadian Hillman Prize honouring excellence in investigative journalism!

The Canadian Hillman Prize celebrates print, digital and broadcast reporting that highlights injustice and leads to public policy change. 

Winning entries will be judged on the following criteria: 

  • Significance of journalism in service of the common good
  • Resourcefulness and courage in reporting 
  • Skill in relating the story and impact of the coverage

Eligibility: Entries must be published or broadcast in 2020 and have been made widely available to a Canadian audience. Nominated material and a cover letter explaining how the entry meets the requirements can be submitted here. Deadline: January, 15, 2021. There is no fee to enter.

The winner will receive a $5000 honorarium and a certificate at an event to be held in Toronto (or celebrated virtually) on March 25, 2021. The winner will also receive travel to New York City to attend the U.S. Hillman Prize Ceremony (if it will be held person).
