Call for entries: Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award

DRUCKEN

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2019 /CNW/ - Early-career photographers looking to sharpen their skills and gain national exposure should apply for the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award, a unique opportunity to spend six weeks with The Canadian Press in Toronto. Deadline is Feb. 22, 2019.

As part of her 2018 Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award experience, Tijana Martin captured this image of Ontario NDP leader and leader of the official opposition Andrea Horwath shaking hands with students from St. Joseph Richmond Hill Catholic Elementary School at Queen's Park in Toronto on June 8, 2018.

The award is open to Canadian photojournalists with fewer than five years' experience, including students and freelancers. The recipient will have the opportunity to be mentored by top photographers, work in a fast-paced environment and cover news, major sports and top cultural events.

"The six weeks I spent as the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award recipient provided me with a lifetime of learning experiences and has played a major role in deciding how to navigate my career," says Tijana Martin, the 2018 recipient who subsequently left her news photographer job with the Lethbridge-Herald in Alberta to pursue a freelance career in Toronto.

Read Martin's first-hand account of her experience, view samples of her photos while with The Canadian Press and check out her original portfolio submission. Past winners include Chris Donovan, Eduardo Lima, Marta Iwanek, Michelle Siu, Galit Rodan and Hannah Yoon.

Award details, the online application and jury members—which includes members of Hanson's family and former photographer colleagues—can be found on the award criteria page.

The winner of the 2019 Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award will be announced in March. The award will be formally presented at the annual CJF Awards in June at The Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.

This award is generously supported by Nikon.

ABOUT THE TOM HANSON PHOTOJOURNALISM AWARD
#tomhansonaward
The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) and The Canadian Press launched the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award in 2009 in memory of award-winning photojournalist Tom Hanson. The award offers a six-week paid internship at The Canadian Press head office in Toronto for a photojournalist in the early stages of his or her career. The selection committee is made up of CJF board members, photographers and photo editors from The Canadian Press and daily newspapers, past winners and members of Mr. Hanson's family. The winning applicant will complete the internship between April and September 2019 and be paid at the start rate for photographers at The Canadian Press.

ABOUT TOM HANSON
Tom Hanson was a photojournalist whose images from the Oka conflict to the cut and thrust of Parliament told vivid stories. He was an award-winning photographer for The Canadian Press who travelled around the world and across the country, shooting some of the most iconic news and sports images over a 15-year period. When Hanson died suddenly at age 41 in 2009, his family, friends, colleagues at The Canadian Press and the country's photojournalism community wanted to find an appropriate way to honour his memory, talent and spirit. The result was the creation of the Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award.
