Recognizing Atlantic Canada's Finest Journalists

The Atlantic Journalism Awards (AJAs), established in 1981, is a highly- regarded annual program which recognizes journalistic excellence and achievement in print and electronic news media in Atlantic Canada. Each year there are hundreds of entries in the Awards from the Atlantic Canadian journalists who bring us our news and tell our stories. There are also a number of journalism student awards. Entries are submitted in English et aussi en francais.

Finalists are selected by panels of independent judges and they are recognized at provincial AJAs luncheons. The overall winners are announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremony in May each year.

The AJAs is a federally incorporated non-profit organization and is directed by a volunteer industry Board of Directors. The organization and awards are financed by a number of supporters.
