“The Long, Dark Trail” by Emily Latimer came in second place in the Articles-Feature and Articles-Reporting categories. Latimer wrote about the ethics of true crime podcasts.


“The American Literary Journalist Who Had a Passion for Canada”by Sabina Seyidova came in third place in the Articles-People category. Seyidova profiled Edith Iglauer, an American literary journalist who explained Canadian life to Americans.


Sonya Fatah, one of the journalism professors who managed the RRJ, said she had to be creative when it came to the stories being submitted. “I think that this year was somewhat special just because of the constraints and circumstances the book was being produced in,” said Fatah. Fatah said students had a challenging time working remotely to put the RRJ together, but they were able to succeed.
