1st Place: Matthew Henry, South Mountain Press
“The clear imaging of wild animals is not an easy capture. The photographs were presented in a clear simple layout that allowed the animals to shine.”

2nd Place: Brett Mitchell, The Selkirk Record
“A well-rounded selection of community, culture, arts and sports imagery in this package. The action shots are awe-inspiring and the love and laughter caught on the faces are heartwarming.”

3rd Place: Jordan Ross, The Carillon
“Modern, sleek and stylish. The photographs submitted in this package had me smiling, gasping, and reflecting. It was a beautiful roller coaster.”

The #BNCAwards celebrate and showcase newspapers that serve their communities each and every week with their hard work and professionalism. Community newspapers are on the front lines, keeping the citizens of their communities informed and updated with local, trusted and vital information.
