The Montréal Campus stands out by winning two awards

Journalists from Montreal Campus won two major awards this week.

Journalists Charles Séguin and Naomie Duckett Zamor won the Freedom of the Press Student Excellence Award on Wednesday for their investigation into low strike quorums at UQAM and for a follow-up on the sabotage of the Montreal Campus.

The prize was awarded by World Press Canada Freedom, in partnership with UNESCO. The jury of the pan-Canadian competition highlighted the perseverance of the journalists and their courage to popularize information important for student democracy, even after receiving several threats.

On Tuesday, journalists Félix Rompré, Jules Regimbald and Maxime Ouellet won first prize in the digital category of the Lizette-Gervais Prize thanks to their investigation into the organization Enfin Libre, which sells online training at high costs.

The jury praised a project which stood out for “the originality of the subject and […]the obvious social utility of warning a young audience of the mirages of this type of online training, but also thanks to the audacity of its approach. »
