The Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) has announced the finalists for the 2011 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence. In recognition of their outstanding editorial performance, finalists receive a cash prize of $500 each. 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.
Michelle Boulton, the 2011 Tom Fairley Award coordinator, says, “If an editor has done his or her job well, the reader will seldom recognize the editor’s contributions. The Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on those often unrecognized editors who quietly contribute so much on behalf of the eventual readers.”
The finalists have been invited to EAC’s awards banquet, to be held during EAC’s 2012 conference in Ottawa on June 2.
