Finalists are selected from the entries by panels of independent judges. They are recognized at provincial AJAs luncheons. The overall winners will be announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremomy in early May.

Since the inception of the AJAs, nearly 1,400 individual Atlantic Canadian journalists have been honoured for their journalistic excellence.
