TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - With the deadline only a week away, The Canadian Journalism Foundation encourages print, online and broadcast media from across the country to apply for its Excellence in Journalism Award.

This coveted award celebrates a news organization that embodies exemplary journalistic standards and practices with a resulting impact on the community it serves. Winners in two categories are selected:
