And if you are looking to increase your profile within the industry or would enjoy the opportunity to contribute towards the growing stature and professionalism of community newspapers in Canada, why not be a judge for the BNC?

Its challenging, educational and fun  and places your name among the leading professionals within our industry  whether you are a publisher, editor, manager, journalist or photographer.

If youÔÇÖre interested in judging, ask one of your peers to nominate you. Or, if you know of other qualified professionals who would be interested in getting a glimpse into whatÔÇÖs happening at community newspapers across the country, why donÔÇÖt you nominate them?

If you have the necessary knowledge, patience, good judgment and some available time, weÔÇÖd like to hear from you. Judges will be asked to write-out their advice and constructive criticism (anonymously), and will be publicly acknowledged on CCNAÔÇÖs BNC web site and the Winners Book.
