Award-Winning Journalism
from The Globe and Mail

National Newspaper Awards

And the winners are....

From Saturday's Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail was saluted last night as Canada's leading forum for newspaper editorials and opinion.

The paper swept the prizes for editorial writing, editorial cartooning and columns at the National Newspaper Awards ceremony in Calgary. Awards for international reporting, page design and feature writing brought the Globe's total to six prizes. That's a record for the paper and the second-highest total in the 53 years of the National Newspaper Awards.

Margaret Wente, whose topical and provocative Counterpoint column runs in The Globe's Comment section, won her second consecutive NNA for column writing. The roster of previous recipients of this award includes many giants of Canadian journalism, but Ms. Wente is the first multiple winner.

A contentious series of editorials on the myths of globalization earned a second NNA for Marcus Gee, who was rewarded in the columns category four years ago. The sweep for the Globe's op-ed pages was completed by cartoonist Brian Gable. Mr. Gable's penetrating illustrations also won an NNA for The Globe in 1995 and for the Regina Leader-Post in 1986. Only one other newspaper, the Toronto Star in 1980, has won awards for editorial writing, editorial cartooning and column writing in the same year.

"We strive for the utmost quality in every area in journalism and those efforts to constantly improve are recognized in these awards," Richard Addis, editor of the Globe, said. "From cartooning to feature writing, from design to international reporting, The Globe's strengths are rich and varied.

"There were dozens of other achievements that deserved an award in the Globe last year, but I count this as a recognition of them all and I'm very pleased."

The Globe had received 13 nominations in eight categories.

Miro Cernetig, who began 2001 in the Globe's Beijing bureau before moving to New York, won the international reporting award for his poignant and splendidly written tale of a 12-year-old girl sold by her mother for $200 and then cruelly forced into slavery on the streets of Beijing.

Margaret Philp's award-winning story in the feature-writing category was closer to home but no less remarkable. For nine months, Ms. Philp followed a group of homeless men and women who live in the ravines near a tony Toronto neighbourhood.

The Globe's sixth award was won by designer David Woodside for a series of section fronts. Victory in the layout and design category had been guaranteed for The Globe. Adrian Norris and David Pratt were the other finalists in the category.

Three other Globe journalists were finalists in categories. Allan Maki and Ian Brown were two of the three finalists in the sports writing category. Russell Smith was a finalist in the column category. Johanna Schneller was a finalist in the critical writing award. And Ken Wiwa was also a finalist in the feature writing category.

No other newspaper won more than two prizes last night. The Edmonton Journal and the Ottawa Citizen each won two of the 16 NNAs given out. The Simcoe Reformer, La Presse, Reuters, National Post, the Toronto Star and the Vancouver Sun each won one prize.

The other winners:

Spot News Photography: Ian Smith, the Vancouver Sun, for a photo of a tear-streaked Vancouver firefighter attending a New York memorial service for firefighters who died on Sept. 11.

Sports Writing: Ron Corbett, the Ottawa Citizen, for a story about underprivileged and immigrant children learning to play baseball in Ottawa.

Feature Photography: Peter Power, the Toronto Star, for a photo of an elderly woman feeding pigeons.

Critical Writing: Jonathan Kay, National Post.

Enterprise Reporting: Paul McKay, Ottawa Citizen, for stories on how oil refiners supply some of the dirtiest gas in the western world.

Spot News Reporting: Chris Purdy and Graham Thomson, the Edmonton Journal, for a story about Ralph Klein's late-night visit to a homeless men's shelter.

Local Reporting: Penny Laughren and Meredith MacLeod, the Simcoe Reformer, for an investigation into factory hog farming and the threat to the environment.

Special Project: Montreal's La Presse for a 17-part series on how terrorists are able to operate in Canada.

Business Reporting: Ed Struzik, the Edmonton Journal, for a series on energy.

Sports Photography: Andrew Wallace, Reuters, for a photo of tennis star Serena Williams focused on hitting a tennis ball.

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.)
