Hanson award

A new Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award in memory of the late, award-winning Canadian Press photographer has been set up by CP, says a Hill Times story.

The story says the new award will be unveiled at an upcoming Commoners vs All-Stars soccer match in Ottawa.

Hanson died March 10 while playing pick-up hockey in Ottawa. He was 41.

The 2002 CP photographer of the year was respected among his colleagues and competitors, including current and former Sun photographers.

Good on CP for respecting his contributions to photojournalism.
