The Gordon Sinclair Award is a Canadian journalism award, presented by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television for excellence in broadcast journalism. Originally presented as part of the ACTRA Awards, it was transferred to the new Gemini Awards in 1986.[1] During the ACTRA era, the award was open to both radio and television journalists; when it was taken over by the Academy, it became a television-only award.

In the late 1990s, the award transitioned from a competitive award with a shortlist of nominees, which was presented to honour journalism work within the past year, into a lifetime achievement award whose winner was announced in advance of the annual award ceremony.

Since 2013, it has been presented as part of the Canadian Screen Awards.

The award is named in honour of television and radio commentator Gordon Sinclair.[2]
