Aaron Vincent Elkaim wins Tom Hanson photo award

A freelance photographer from Toronto whose work has appeared in the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail and the National Post has been named the winner of the second annual Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award. The Canadian Journalism Foundation and The Canadian Press declared Aaron Vincent Elkaim (pictured) the winner Thursday out of a strong field of entries. Elkaim, who was one of the finalists in last year's inaugural competition, will join staff at The Canadian Press for a six-week internship later this year. The award was created in memory of Hanson, a renowned Canadian Press photojournalist who died suddenly in 2009 at the age of 41.
