FeatherWhat are the AJAs ?

The Atlantic Journalism Awards, established in 1981, is a highly regarded annual program which recognizes journalistic excellence and achievement in print and electronic news media in Atlantic Canada. The AJAs is a federally incorporated non-profit organization and is directed by a volunteer industry Board of Directors. The project is financed by a number of supporters.

In recent years close to 400 entries have been received from Atlantic Canadian journalists in the 23 print, radio, and television categories. There are also a number of journalism student awards. Entries are submitted in English et aussi en francais.

Finalists are selected from the entries by panels of independent judges. They are recognized at provincial AJAs luncheons. The overall winners will be announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremomy in early May.

Since the inception of the AJAs, nearly 1,400 individual Atlantic Canadian journalists have been honoured for their journalistic excellence.

The Atlantic Journalism Awards has been a continuous annual celebration of journalistic excellence and achievement in Atlantic Canada since 1981. It is now managed by a volunteer industry board of directors representing print and broadcast news organizations. Contact Bill Skerrett at the AJAs office: office@AJAs.ca
