Here in the office we have come to accept that each year at CJFE is busier than the last, and 2014 has been no exception.
The year has been a tumultuous one for press freedom, as the world has seen an increase in the number of journalists killed and imprisoned. However, there have also been some important victories for free expression that we can’t afford to overlook, and CJFE has been working hard to affect positive change.

To mark the 2014 CJFE Gala: A Night to Honour Courageous Reporting, we caught up with five of our past International Press Freedom Award (IPFA) winners.
On December 3, CJFE presented the 2014 Tara Singh Hayer Memorial Award to Canadian journalist and Associated Press Special Regional Correspondent for Afghanistan and Pakistan Kathy Gannon at the 2014 CJFE Gala: A Night to Honour Courageous Reporting.
