The Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) has announced the finalists for the 2012 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence. The $2,000 grand prize is awarded annually to an editor who has shown excellence, skill and talent in helping to produce a work published in Canada in English or French in the award year. EAC is also pleased to announce that, in recognition of their outstanding editorial performance, the other finalists will receive a cash prize of $500 each.
Once again, the judges were faced with the difficult task of selecting a short list from a pool of remarkably talented and dedicated editors who brought out the best in their respective publications. One judge in particular glowingly praised “the editors’ unflagging zeal to get at and express the truths that were important to the authors, and their skill in doing so.”
The finalists have been invited to EAC’s awards banquet, to be held during EAC’s 2013 conference in Halifax on June 8.
