The annual gathering of the country’s student journalists is coming to Toronto in 2018. Hosted by The Eyeopener, Ryerson University’s independent student paper, NASH80 will celebrate and continue the tradition of the Canadian University Press for the past 80 years. We are once again bringing university papers together, with one of the most unique and diverse conferences in student press history.
Come join us in January to learn, share and build with other student journalists across the country alongside leaders in the industry. Registrations are now open—buy your tickets today, before prices go up! Ticket sales close on December 7.
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Check out our socials for updates about the lineup, schedules, and ticket sales!

NASH80 will be holding multiple panels, workshops and creative discussions headed by industry leaders. Evening and afternoon keynotes will also be held throughout the conference. You even have a chance to book one-on-ones with your favourite editors. Come for your opportunity to listen, learn and meet them!

The John H. McDonald Awards for Excellence in Student Journalism, also known as the Johnnies or JHMs, are presented every year as part of NASH. The JHMs are prestigious national awards that celebrate the achievements of student journalists and their publications.
The Diversity and Labour writing awards come with a $500 prize, sponsored by CWA/CMG.
Submissions are closed.
Invoices for JHM submissions will be sent to papers after submissions close, but before finalists are announced in late November. Papers that don't pay the JHM invoice in that month will be automatically disqualified. Message firstname.lastname@example.org to become a member of CUP and to get the best deal on award submissions.
