The Globe and Mail leads all entrants with 19 nominations for the 67th National Newspaper Awards.
A short list announced on Friday includes finalists from 23 news organizations. Montreal's La Presse has the second most nominations with seven, followed by the Toronto Star with six, the Winnipeg Free Press with five and the Ottawa Citizen with four.
In five categories, The Globe earned two separate nominations: Arts and Entertainment, Beat Reporting, Business, International and Long Feature. There were also four double nominees.
Among The Globe's finalists are Mark MacKinnon and Grant Robertson, who are both five-time NNA winners and nine-time nominees.
Two of the three nominees for Project of the Year – The Globe and the Star – are being recognized for reporting on missing and murdered indigenous women and girls, while the other nominee, also from the Star, is for work on human sex trafficking.
"We have a solemn responsibility to do the best journalism possible," said The Globe's editor-in-chief, David Walmsley. "The breadth of subjects nominated shows the bench strength of The Globe and Mail is today unparalleled. I am very proud of the team and their families for their relentless commitment."
A total of 66 finalists were chosen in 21 categories from 1,100 entries, and the winners will be announced on May 27 at a ceremony held in Edmonton.
