• Rob Kelly, Editor-in-Chief, The Lawyers Weekly
• Jennifer Reynolds, Editor-in-Chief, Canadian Family
• Diana Swift, Editor-in-Chief, Canadian Health
“This year we received more nominations for our Editor of the Year award than in any previous year, meaning these finalists rose to the top of a crowded field,” said PWAC President Craig Silverman. “This is a special award because it enables Canada’s freelance writers to recognize the work of Canadian editors. Our finalists are respected professionals who treat writers as partners and peers. Congratulations to all three of them.”
The Editor of the Year and two honourable mentions will be named during the Writers’ Awards Luncheon at the MagNet magazine conference on June 8 in Toronto.
Written nominations are submitted by PWAC members and a panel of three member judges evaluate the nominees based on criteria that includes editing and communications skills, the ability to bring out the best in writers, and the fairness of pay rates and contracts.PWAC, established in 1976, is the national organization representing close to 700 freelance writers and journalists in Canada.
