One year after his graduation from the Carleton University School of Journalism and Communication, BJ ‘16 Craig Lord received an award for Excellence in Science and Technology Reporting from the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance.
Lord, a reporter for the Ottawa Business Journal as well as a regular videographer with The Globe and Mail, won the award for his regular coverage of government procurement policy changes, as well as his regular coverage of companies and issues affecting the Ottawa business ecosystem. His beats particularly cover local technology companies and entrepreneurs, as Lord also acts as an editor for Techopia, the Ottawa Business Journal’s spin-off technology publication.
Lord follows in the footsteps of CBC reporter Julie Ireton, who won the award last year. Ireton, a business reporting instructor with the Carleton Journalism program, taught Lord in the final year of his studies.
“Learn from the best, and the best are at Carleton Journalism,” Lord told the assembled crowd of Canadian technology leaders in his acceptance.
The CATA Alliance’s annual gala, held this year at Carleton University’s Richcraft Hall, honours excellence in Canadian technology and innovation.
