This award is presented to an Ontario media organization to acknowledge their outstanding coverage of Ontario gymnastics events in the preceding 12 months. Two awards are available each year – one for print media, and one for audio-visual.
All Ontario-based companies who have provided valuable advertising, publication, or broadcasting service to the gymnastics community in the past 12 months are eligible to be nominated. Nominations will be accepted in each of the following categories:
- Print (Newspapers, posters, flyers, etc.)
- Audio-Visual (Television, Radio, Internet)
Typically it is host clubs who nominate a member of their local media, but nominations will also be accepted from individual members who wish to recognize appropriate outstanding achievements.
Clippings, photographs or a résumé of program coverage should be submitted to support nominations. Examples of the type of coverage received from either of the above media and the benefits how it has assisted either the club or Gymnastics Ontario, should be provided. A contact name, email, and telephone number must be provided for the nominee.
Nominations should include information on the organization’s Producer, Sport Announcer, Network, and any other relevant areas related to the media coverage. A contact name, email, and telephone number must be provided for the nominee.
