2023 Canadian Community Newspapers Awards competition is now open!

The 2023 CCNAwards open on Monday May 15, 2023.  This year’s competition will accept works from the 2022 calendar year and once again use the BetterBNC online entry system.

The contest will be open from May 15 to June 21, 2023 and winners will be announced in mid-September 2023, just before the annual celebration of National Newspaper Week.

The CCNAwards celebrate the best in community publishing from across the country. With a diverse array of award categories covering editorial, photography and multimedia, the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards offer learning opportunities for publications of all sizes. The program is open to all English and French community newspapers across Canada, including non-members of News Media Canada.

Community newspaper publishers can take this opportunity to recognize their local Champions’ hard work and dedication by submitting their best stories and photos from 2022.
