How will you celebrate National Newspaper Week this year?

In about two weeks we will celebrating the 81st annual National Newspaper Week!

This year News Media Canada has partnered with Canadian artist Ola Volo to produce a new Champion The Truth collection featuring a custom piece of art and a softcover journal.

Ola’s limited-edition signed print, “Champions” aims to highlight the role of local news as champions of the truth.  Items from the collection will be available for purchase at the start of National Newspaper Week and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Canadian Journalists for Free Expression.

News Media Canada has created a new ad campaign, featuring Ola’s artwork, that will be running across the country.  Please consider publishing a full or half page house ad to help celebrate the critical role of local newspapers with your readers.

There is an updated Publisher’s Toolkit with resources to help you celebrate in your market including:

  • National Ad Campaign (plus small space/filler ads and a carrier appreciation ad)
  • Social Media Support
  • Reader Engagement
  • Local Influencer Engagement
