Globe heads 2001 award pack
Saturday, March 9, 2002

TORONTO -- The Globe and Mail has received more than twice as many National Newspaper Award nominations as any other paper for 2001 and has locked up the award for layout and design. All three finalists in that category are from The Globe.

Sixteen awards, each worth $1,500, are to be presented in Calgary on April 26. The Globe could win as many as half.

It took two out of three nominations in feature writing, sports writing and column writing, and one each in international reporting, critical writing, editorial writing and editorial cartooning.

The NNAs are Canada's most prestigious newspaper awards, and the only set of awards that attract entries from virtually every paper. Papers across the country submitted more than 1,100 entries this year.

Of the 48 nominations announced yesterday, The Globe received 13, The Toronto Star six, The Edmonton Journal and The Vancouver Sun four each, The National Post and the Ottawa Citizen three each and La Presse of Montreal and The Simcoe Reformer two each.

Single nominations went to the Calgary Herald, The Canadian Press, Cape Breton Post, The Edmonton Sun, The Hamilton Spectator, The Kingston Whig-Standard, The Kitchener-Waterloo Record, The Ottawa Sun, Reuters, the Sarnia Observer and Winnipeg Free Press.

The Globe's nominees:

Layout and design: Adrian Norris for Report on Business fronts, David Pratt for special Saturday layouts after the Sept. 11 attacks and David Woodside for a Books front and other layouts.

Feature writing: Margaret Philp on the people who live in Toronto's ravines and Ken Wiwa on travelling the length of Yonge Street from the Ontario-Minnesota border to Toronto. (Also nominated: Leslie Papp, The Toronto Star.) Ms. Philp was a 1990 nominee for business reporting.

Sports writing: Ian Brown on life behind the scenes in the horse-breeding sheds of Kentucky and Allan Maki on Graham James's return to coaching in Spain after being imprisoned for sexual abuse of teenaged hockey players. (Also nominated: Ron Corbett, The Ottawa Citizen.) Mr. Maki was a nominee for the 1994 award.

Columns: Russell Smith for his Virtual Culture column in Globe Review and Margaret Wente for her Counterpoint column in Comment. (Also nominated: Mark Steyn, National Post.) Ms. Wente has been nominated three years in a row and won last year.

International Reporting: Miro Cernetig on the child slave trade in China. (Also nominated: Martin Regg Cohn, The Toronto Star; Marie-Claude Malboeuf, La Presse, Montreal.) Mr. Cernetig shared a nomination for the 1992 special-projects award and was nominated for the 1996 feature-writing award.

Critical Writing: Johanna Schneller, Globe Review's The Moviegoer, on skinny actresses, the sing-along version of The Sound of Music and whether to edit the World Trade Center out of film footage. (Also nominated: Stephen Hume, The Vancouver Sun; Jonathan Kay, National Post.) Ms. Schneller was a 1999 nominee for column writing.

Editorial Writing: Marcus Gee on globalization. (Also nominated: Doug McGee, Cape Breton Post; Fazil Mihlar, The Vancouver Sun.) Mr. Gee was a 1993 nominee for editorial writing and won the 1998 award for columns.

Editorial cartooning: Brian Gable on martyrs-in-training ("What do you want to be when you blow up?") and other subjects. (Also nominated: Cameron Cardow, Ottawa Citizen; Theo Moudakis, The Toronto Star.)

Mr. Gable has received six nominations since 1986 and has won the award twice. Staff

Globe gets 8 award nominations
Columnists, critical writers, reporters among contenders for prestigious prize

Saturday, March 10, 2001

For his vivid portrait of resource-rich, war-torn Congo after the fall of dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, Globe and Mail reporter John Stackhouse was one of 10 Globe journalists nominated for National Newspaper Awards yesterday.

The Globe topped the list of finalists with eight nominations, followed by seven for the National Post, and six each for The Toronto Star and The Vancouver Sun.

"Again the quality and authority of The Globe shines through these nominations. We strive for the best and these awards are a recognition of those efforts," Globe editor-in-chief Richard Addis said.

Mr. Stackhouse is a previous winner of five NNAs.

Two-time NNA winner Doug Saunders was nominated for a third straight year for critical writing, as was theatre critic Kate Taylor.

Globe and Mail columnist Margaret Wente was nominated for a second year in a row, this year for a column on Margaret Atwood.

Veteran reporter Virginia Galt, who wrote a series about labour in the New Economy, was nominated for business reporting.

Larry Towell was named in feature photography for his Globe photos of the burial of a Palestinian violence victim.

In feature writing, The Globe has two entries: Sarah Hampson's profile of poet Anne Carson and a feature by Jill Mahoney, Kim Lunman and Erin Anderssen on the lives of residents of an Alberta trailer park in the hours before a tornado hit.

The winners of the awards, administered by the Canadian Newspaper Association, will be announced May 3 in Toronto.

Michener Awards
Globe up for Michener Award

Stories on stock market practices make Michener list for public service

Tuesday, March 20, 2001

The Globe and Mail has been nominated for a Michener Award for meritorious public service in journalism for two separate investigations into controversial stock market practices.

One of the series revealed that the public may be paying too much for their investments because of the practice of "juicing" or "high-closing."

The investigation found that many stocks and mutual funds may have been subject to inflated prices because of these practices.

The second series examined how executives and employees of Yorkton Securities Inc. acted as early buyers of cheap shares in companies they helped create, promote and sell to the public. The series triggered an investigation by securities regulators.

Both series ran in The Globe's Report on Business section and mark the second time that a Globe business series has garnered a nomination for the award. Last year, the Globe came in second place for its series on insider trading.

Karen Howlett, Dawn Walton, Janet McFarland, Richard Blackwell and Jacquie McNish all share the nomination honour.

Victor Malarek, who recently returned to The Globe and Mail to head its investigative team, was also nominated for his work on police and the justice system while
he was at CBC's the fifth estate.

One of the pieces showed how an aggressive, politicized Toronto police union threatened to target political enemies.

The Globe and Mail has won the prestigious award in 1988, 1986, 1985, 1977 and 1972.  This year the Michener Awards will be announced on May 24.
