Showcase your creativity at the Great Idea Awards

We are encouraging our daily and community newspaper members to start gathering your top advertising, marketing and promotional initiatives from 2012 to submit for next year’s Great Idea Awards. The national awards program is open to members of the Canadian Community Newspapers Association (CCNA) and Canadian Newspapers Association (CNA) and honours the very best in newspaper marketing and promotion. 

The 2013 competition will include a brand new award category for Print Innovation, celebrating innovative printed materials for, or featuring, advertising clients.

Newspapers Canada will begin accepting entries for the 2013 Great Idea Awards in mid-January.

If you would like to recommend an experienced individual or colleague to be a judge in the 2013 competition, click here to download the nomination form.
