TORONTO, Ont. – Newly-hired Truck News/Truck West assistant editor Adam Ledlow recently took third prize in the 2005 Fraser MacDougall Journalism Awards competition for articles about some aspect of freedom of expression.
The annual competition is named for the late Fraser MacDougall, former Ottawa bureau chief of The Canadian Press and first executive secretary of the Ontario Press Council, sponsor of the awards, which are open to journalism students at Ontario colleges and universities.
Articles previously published in school publications or class essays were accepted for judging by a panel comprising Doris Anderson, chair of the Press Council, and professional Council members Luisa D’Amato of the Waterloo Region Record and Rick Laiken of the Toronto Star.
Ledlow was a student at Humber College in Toronto when he entered his winning article.
Ledlow’s winning article argued the business side of news media threatens the freedom of many newspapers, television and radio stations and that magazines remain perhaps the only medium where freedom of the press is truly free.
