The Link is Gearing Up for NASH and We Need Your Help

  • Courtesy Nash81

Every year, The Link takes part in the Canadian University Press’s annual conference, also known as NASH. At NASH, student journalists from across Canada gather to attend workshops about the media from the pros.

It’s also an award ceremony—the JHM Awards, aka the Johnnies—that honor the strongest student journalists in the country. There will be a lot of schmoozing and yes, you can party once the sun goes down.

This year NASH is in Calgary and will take place from Jan. 3-6. We decide who’s going and will place one nomination in each category–so take advantage and who knows, maybe you’ll even make it into The Link’s history books!

Awards are given out in a wide variety of categories:

In Writing: Arts & Culture, Humour, Diversity Reporting, Feature and Op-Ed Writing, as well as Investigative, Labour, News, Sports, Indigenous, Data and Climate Reporting

In Multimedia: Best Cover/Layout, Graphic/Illustration, and Photo of the Year

In Recognition: Best Student Journalist and Student Publication of the Year

We’ll decide what gets nominated through a vote on Oct. 16 at 5 P.M. If you’d like to nominate an article or a journalist for a JHM Award please email Miriam at You can also nominate pieces by printing out a copy and posting it on our office wall before Oct. 16.

More information will be out soon on how to attend NASH as a delegate, with letters of intent from staff and masthead due Nov. 23.

XOXO, The Link

P.S. See you in Calgary!
