The Globe and Mail has been awarded 10 National Newspaper Awards for coverage that included an in-depth investigation into racial bias in Canada’s corrections system and reporting on repression in the Chinese region of Xinjiang.
The Globe was the most decorated publication this year by the NNAs, Canada’s most prestigious journalism prizes for text-based reporting. Awards went to departments across The Globe’s newsroom: politics, arts, sports, health, columns, design, features and investigations.
Globe journalists’ probe of the WE organization and the scandal that centred around it, as well as a moving essay of a long-term care worker’s efforts to comfort COVID-19-stricken residents were also honoured.
The Globe’s Tom Cardoso won in the Investigations category and was also named Journalist of the Year for his work.
“This year ranks as the most special when one considers the disadvantages the industry has faced. Working away from our beloved newsrooms and our cherished colleagues, we nevertheless maintained our covenant with the audience – to deliver the news. The range of winners is testament to the efforts of deeply committed professionals working in sometimes dangerous and often isolating conditions. The pride we all feel for those both named tonight and those behind the scenes is inestimable.”
David Walmsley, editor-in-chief of The Globe
