Allan Slaight Prize

Get to know our 2020 jury

Congratulations to Sharon J. Riley, winner of the 2020 Allan Slaight Prize for Journalism for her story “The Age of Surrender”, which analyzes how our medical systems strip some elders of their autonomy and how this loss of control affects them and their families.

The Allan Slaight Prize for Journalism celebrates journalistic achievements by contributors to The Walrus. Launched in 2017 by The Slaight Family Foundation, the $10,000 prize is awarded to an independent journalist for their work researching, analyzing, and writing about some of the most important topics of our time. A jury of industry specialists reviews more than fifty long-form articles published by The Walrus each year and selects a longlist of ten stories, a shortlist of three finalists, and the recipient of the prize.
