Once again showing that it punches above its tiny weight, The Coast has recently been nominated for three Atlantic Journalism Awards
for work done in 2010. Contributing editor Bruce Wark is a finalist in the Enterprise Reporting category for "Blow job,"
his August 5 examination of the potential pitfalls of wind power. In the same category, Wark and reporter Linda Pannozzo are finalists for their co-written series
exploring the proposed cull
of Sable Island seals. In the Feature Writing category, senior features writer Stephen Kimber is a finalist for his May 6 cover story “Is Corey Wright the Wrong Man?,”
which questions the guilt of the man convicted of killing an American seaman outside a Halifax bar. The winners will be announced in Halifax May 7, 2011.
