I'm a volunteer Youth Organizer from Amnesty International Canada, a non-profit human rights organization. I contacted you about a month ago to share an exciting opportunity for youth and students to participate in Amnesty International's Media Award competition.

This is the first year we've presented an award designated for youth only. The Youth Media Award will be included in our annual Amnesty International Media Awards that have been presented for excellence in journalism about human rights since 1995.

Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award

Friday, 05 December 2014 09:48

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Tom Hanson was a photojournalist whose images from the Oka conflict to the cut-and-thrust of the House of Commons 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 of the last 15 years.

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.

The deadline for applications is January 8, 2015
