Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award

Applications for the Hanson Award will open in November (2009) and must be submitted by Jan. 4, 2010. Finalists for the Hanson Award will be interviewed by the selection committee in January with a winner announced by Feb. 1.

"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."
