National and provincial newspaper awards for 2010 will soon be awarded, and once again the North Island Gazette will be represented as a finalist in several categories.

The Gazette, which was honoured as Canada’s Best All-Around Newspaper for its circulation category a year ago, received two nominations for the national Canadian Community Newspaper Awards.

The Gazette is nominated in the Outstanding Community Service category for its Christmas Hamper Fund program and coverage, and cartoonist Lawrence Woodall was nominated for best local cartoon among papers with circulation under 10,000.

In the BC/Yukon Community Newspapers Association awards (known as the Ma Murray Awards), the Gazette was nominated in the special section category for the Our Coast supplement.

 

The national and provincial awards presentations will be held on consecutive nights April 29 and 30 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond.
