About The Atlantic Journalism Awards

The Atlantic Journalism Awards (AJAs) was started in 1981 to honour journalistic excellence and achievement in print and electronic news in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland/Labrador.

Close to 1,100 individual journalists have been honoured since the inception of the AJAs. Today a volunteer Board of Directors representing a wide range of news outlets directs the AJAs. The program is funded by a number of partners and contributors. Judging is conducted by independent panels of judges and the awards are presented at a gala awards ceremony in the spring.
