The Standard wins newspaper awards

Local paper receives national and provincial recognition this year

The Hope Standard took home two honours at last weekend’s Newspapers Canada national awards held in Toronto.

This newspaper came in third place in its circulation category for best front page, followed by a Blue Ribbon, which recognizes overall excellence of the publication in terms of design, advertising design, writing and photography.

“It really is an honour to be applauded on the national scale for our eff orts,” said Standard editor Kerrie-Ann Schoenit of the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards. “All of us who work here strive to provide our community with our best efforts each week, and to have our peers see this dedication is appreciated.”

The annual awards program celebrates excellence in community publishing from coast to coast and highlights the best in editorial, photography and multimedia initiatives.

Earlier in April, The Standard also came in third place in its circulation category for newspaper excellence at the Ma Murray British Columbia & Yukon Community Newspaper Awards.
