Start preparing your submissions for the 2016 awards season

It’s time to sort through your best work from 2015 and prepare your submissions for Newspapers Canada’s upcoming awards season.

Community newspapers are once again invited to compete in the prestigious Canadian Community Newspaper Awards, celebrating excellence in community media across the country. Both community and daily publications are invited to compete in the Great Idea Awards, which honour innovative and creative examples of newspaper marketing and promotion.

The official call for entries for both awards programs will be Monday, November 30. Please check the Newspapers Canada website at that time for access to the awards registration systems.

Newspapers will be able to submit work for the CCNAwards and the Great Idea Awards from November 30, 2015 to January 26, 2016.
