Celebrating Canadian Excellence in Agricultural Journalism

(Winnipeg, Manitoba – September 22, 2018) The best and brightest agricultural journalists, broadcasters, communicators and photographers were honoured at the 2018 Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation (CFWF) Awards Banquet, held on September 22, 2018 in conjunction with CFWF’s annual conference.

Gold, silver and bronze awards were presented in 14 categories at the banquet held at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. The banquet concluded the three-day conference, which included various agri-food tours and professional development sessions. A total of 52 awards were presented with winners taking home cheques of $300, $200 and $100 for gold, silver and bronze respectively.

Winners were chosen by 28 judges from across Canada, the United States and Australia. These judges included journalists, photographers, professors, farmers and communicators from different media and publications, and a mix of agricultural and non-agricultural backgrounds.

CFWF (www.cfwf.ca) represents almost 350 English-speaking agricultural journalists, broadcasters and

communicators from across Canada through six regional associations in Atlantic Canada, Eastern Canada, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.

The links to the winning entries will be posted for viewing shortly and the award winners, sponsors and judges for 2018 are listed in the Press Release which is available for download in the Press Release section of the CFWF website.
