Manitoba Day Award
The Manitoba Day Award is an award presented yearly by the Association for Manitoba Archives which recognizes those users of archives who have completed an original work of excellence that enhances the archival community and contributes to the understanding and celebration of Manitoba history. These works can be fiction or non-fiction and can be in a variety of media, including audio and film. The deadline for nomination is normally March of each year with the award being granted in May.
Past winners include Manitoba playwright Carolyn Gray, whose play the Elmwood Visitation employed the archival records of Thomas Glendenning Hamilton and local historian Russ Gourluck, who employed photographs from the now defunct Winnipeg Tribune for the Encyclopedia of Manitoba. Both of these collections are held by the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections.
