The Canadian Association of Journalists award for photojournalism celebrates a feature that showcases how five decades of hydroelectric development has transformed the lives and landscapes fed by the Nelson River in the province’s north
The Canadian Association of Journalists presented The Narwhal with an award for photojournalism Saturday, during a Zoom gala to celebrate excellence in journalism produced in 2020.
The award for photojournalism went to Aaron Vincent Elkaim for his in-depth photo feature that examines the impacts of hydro development in northern Manitoba within the larger contextual legacy of ongoing environmental colonialism in Canada.
Elkaim spent several years travelling to Indigenous communities impacted by six major hydro dams built along the Nelson River, which have flooded and destroyed ecosystems, polluted water, degraded fish quality and exacerbated the problem of economic and food insecurity in the remote region.
