Each year, we recognize Canadian journalists for exemplary work covering issues related to the sexual exploitation of children. Award winners receive $500 and a commemorative item. Travel and accommodations to the attend awards event is also included for professional journalist categories. For more information contact us.
Each category has a separate award for English and French submissions.
News or feature article, appearing in a traditional print or online publication (with editorial oversight), that covers issues related to the sexual exploitation of children and/or youth.
News, feature story or documentary that covers the issues related to the sexual exploitation of children and/or youth. Submission must have been broadcast or screened publicly.
Feature news stories that use multiple mediums to report on the issue of child sexual exploitation. For example, a newspaper may use print, online video and a social media platform to tell a story. Note, each medium should add something unique to the story rather than simply re-tell it in a different format.
