Hillman Prizes

2022 Canadian Hillman Prize

The Call for Entries for the 2022 Canadian Hillman Prize will open in November. The deadline will be January 15, 2022. There is no fee to enter.


The Canadian Hillman Prize honours excellence in journalism in service of the common good. The Hillman Prize seeks out investigative reporting that draws attention to social or economic injustice and hopefully leads to corrective measures. We strive to recognize discernment of a significant news story, resourcefulness and courage in reporting, skill in relating the story and the impact of the coverage.

There is no fee to enter. There is no limit to the number of entries one publication or outlet may enter.

The 2021 Hillman Prize will be given to a reported story or series published or broadcast in 2020. Eligible entries include reporting in newspapers, magazines and online, as well as television, radio and podcasts, tablets and multimedia. Entries must have been published in Canada and been widely accessible to a Canadian audience. Self-published work is not eligible.

The winner(s) of the 2022 Canadian Hillman Prize will be announced in March and will receive a $5,000 prize and a certificate and will be celebrated at a live or virtual event depending on the status of the coronavirus pandemic.
