INSIDE LOTTERIES A 2 THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 2015 winnipegfreepress. com MORE than 30 vendors will set up shop when The Forks Farmers’ Market opens for the season, from 11 a. m. to 4 p. m. Sunday. “ It’s our second season... and we are looking forward to building on the success of last year, with even more vendors and services,” Melissa Morrow, events manager at The Forks, said in a news release. There will be free entertainment and face painting and cookies for children. The first 75 customers will receive a free starter plant or flowers to take home for their garden. Located in The Forks Market Plaza parking lot, the market offers an everchanging lineup of local vendors each Sunday. “ From handmade goods to locally grown plants and produce, it is a fantastic showcase of what’s available within our community,” said Morrow. “ And if your shopping bags get too full, there is a free pedicab service that will take you from the market to your car.” The market runs every Sunday through September.

Farmers market back at The Forks A N in- depth look at how architecture shaped our city may not have won the Winnipeg Free Press a prestigious national journalism award, but it brought the newspaper into the finals. The Canadian Journalism Foundation Excellence in Journalism Award went to the Globe and Mail for its special report on thalidomide survivors during an awards gala at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto on Wednesday. “ It is a huge honour to have been among the finalists for the Canadian Journalism Foundation award of excellence,” said Free Press editor Paul Samyn. “ The journalism that was the cornerstone of our City Beautiful series was judged to be among the best in the land in 2014 and underscores our commitment to journalistic excellence for our audiences in print and on digital.” The award, now in its 19th year, was established by F. L. R. Jackman, chairman of the Jackman Foundation and founder of the Canadian Journalism Foundation. It honours a Canadian media organization that “ embodies exemplary journalism with a resulting impact on the community it serves.” Earlier this year, the CJF announced the Free Press was a finalist in the large- media category competing against the Globe and Mail , the Toronto Star , Globalnews. ca, and L’actualite . The Free Press has won the category twice before ( in 2009 and 2013), and this was the third year in a row it was a finalist for the award. The Free Press ’s three stories were parts one, two and three of City Beautiful: How Architecture Shaped Winnipeg’s DNA . The series, published in the Free Press , later became a bestselling book. The stories in the other media outlets included thalidomide, the firing of Jian Ghomeshi over sex allegations and the post- traumatic stress disorder faced by current and former members of the Canadian Armed Forces. When the nominations were announced, awards jury chairman Christopher Waddell, an associate professor at the Carleton University School of Journalism and Communication, said, “ This year’s entries reflected the range of extraordinary work done by news organizations on social, political, economic and cultural issues. “ The entries also demonstrate how quickly news organizations are moving away from their traditional roles as newspapers, television and radio outlets to a multimedia work in which they are creating and presenting news and information in new and combined formats for print, broadcast online and mobile audiences.” Other members of the awards jury were Jackman, Mary De Paoli, executive vice- president of Sun Life Financial, Hershell Ezrin, managing director of Ezrin Communications, Antonia Maloni, a political science professor at McGill University, and Shauna Snow- Capparelli, associate professor and chairwoman of Mount Royal University’s bachelor of communicationjournalism program.
