New category at Great Idea Awards

Newspapers Canada will begin accepting entries for the 2014 Great Idea Awards soon. Each year, this special national awards program celebrates the creative marketing and promotional projects undertaken by our daily and community newspaper members.

This year’s awards will feature a brand new award category honouring young reader engagement initiatives, which will recognize newspapers that have developed marketing projects aimed at readers under the age of 25.

New this year, the Great Idea Awards have partnered with Newspaper Toolbox to create a customized online entry platform to make the submission process quick, easy and more affordable. We encourage our members to begin gathering their best marketing and promotional materials from 2013 to enter for the annual competition.

And remember, if you would like to recommend yourself or an experienced colleague to serve as a judge in the 2014 competition, you can click here to download the nomination form.
