The best and brightest agricultural journalists, broadcasters, communicators and photographers were honoured at the 2020 Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation (CFWF) Awards Ceremony, held on September 24, 2020 as an online event due to the postponement of CFWF’s annual conference.
Gold, silver and bronze awards were presented in 15 categories via Zoom. A total of 43 awards were presented with winners taking home cheques of $300, $200 and $100 for gold, silver and bronze respectively.
Winners were chosen by 24 judges from across Canada, the United States and the UK. These judges included journalists, photographers, professors, farmers and communicators from different media and publications, and a mix of agricultural and non-agricultural backgrounds.
CFWF 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 awards categories, winners, and sponsors for 2020 are listed on the CFWF website.
