Celebrate National Newspaper Week and Carrier Day this October

Newspapers of all sizes are encouraged to celebrate National Newspaper Week, taking place this year from October 4 to 10. This year marks the 75th anniversary of National Newspaper Week.

The 2015 theme is “Power of the Press.” Newspapers Canada is pleased to provide a series of print and digital ads emphasizing the effectiveness of newspapers in delivering news and advertising. Members are encouraged to download and publish these materials during this week-long celebration and promote the enduring strength of the newspaper industry.

National Newspaper Week also includes Carrier Appreciation Day on Saturday, October 10. Carrier Appreciation Day honours the hard-working men and women who make a vital contribution to the industry.

Additional materials, including editorial cartoons, puzzles, editorials and more, are available at www.nationalnewspaperweek.com.
