Submit your nomination for the Tom Fairley Award


Do you work behind the scenes as an editor? Move to the front line and gain some recognition! Whether you work as a freelance or an in-house editor, you can apply for the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence—or nominate an editor you admire. Established by Editors Canada, the $2,000 cash award recognizes an editor’s outstanding contribution to a work published in Canada in English or French. And it doesn’t matter whether you’ve edited a book, magazine, report or software documentation—any writing project is eligible.

The deadline for submitting your letter of nomination is January 30, 2017—so don’t delay! See the details on the Editors Canada website.
