The Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) has announced the finalists for the 2010 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence. The $2,000 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.
“Editors are often the silent partner in written communication,” says award coordinator and EAC past president Moira White. “The Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence provides a glimpse into the extraordinary lengths some editors go to, to ensure that a document ‘sings.'”
The finalists have been invited to EAC’s awards banquet, to be held during EAC’s 2011 conference in Vancouver on May 28.
