CANADIAN ETHNIC MEDIA ASSOCIATION

AWARDS FOR JOURNALISTIC EXCELLENCE 2022

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Canadian Ethnic Media Association undertakes its 44th Annual Awards this year with a nod to the overwhelming grip dealt by the greatest health crisis of our time.  We will once again celebrate in the safest manner recommended to and by the media for all sectors of society.  We are going Virtual, again!  On Thursday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, we will host an online Awards Show, befitting the precautionary methods practiced by a world besieged by the worst contagion to hit the planet in more than a century.

With special thanks to several broadcast partners, our online production will be seen on-air across the country in a nod to the national scope and importance of CEMA’s long-standing charter members, and to all of Canada’s ethnic media.

The year August 31, 2021-August 41-2022 is one of the most volatile years in history for major news events and coverage.   The Covid-19 Pandemic.  Surging Illness and Fatalities. The Rush to Vaccinate.  Building Immunity.  Lockdowns. Financial Stress.  Racism.  Police and Authoritarian Brutality. War and Worldwide Protests for Justice.  Recovery and Good Will.

You are witness to it all. You have used your extraordinary journalism skills as a chronicler of the fear and outrage.  You will follow the movement towards change.  You will proclaim the reverse of nature’s searing coronavirus. You will herald the unravelling of decades of oppression.  You will celebrate human kindness. This is the year of unprecedented importance for local, national and international media.

We want to see your best work.  Send us your submissions for the Canadian Ethnic Media Association Awards for Journalistic Excellence 2022.
