Greg Clark Award
INSIGHT. EXPERIENCE. ACCESS. CONNECTIONS.

It's an award that's unique among Canadian journalism, one that's designed to offer working journalists a chance to gain insight and meet key decision-makers on their beats. The successful applicant(s) will get an opportunity to spend up to a week observing the inner workings of an organization not usually accessible to the working journalist. The award addresses the need for broader awareness and exposure of the increasing complexity of issues and institutions journalists cover in day to day reportage.
