The Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association encourages excellence by sponsoring an annual provincial competition to celebrate the achievements of its member newspapers. Congratulations to the 2020 Awards of Excellence winners in the Photo Feature category. 1st Place: High Wire Act: Rocky Mountain Outlook “The winner is a strong silhouette that might not work as well with different scenery. You hold your breath looking at this photo.” 2nd Place: Place: Hoarfrost in a Ghost Town: East Central Alberta Review “A nicely composed scenic photo from winter on the Prairies with convergent diagonal lines.” 3rd Place: Sitting pretty: Strathmore Times “It helps to have a co-operative subject.” Newspapers compete against other newspapers of similar circulation for special awards in such categories as editorial, photography, advertising, and special promotion. The 2020 BNC Awards of Excellence were presented to winners in an online ceremony in May 2021.
