National Newspaper Week is well underway! Thank you to all the newspapers who are supporting this ground-breaking initiative! Help...
There is less than a week before the start of National Newspaper Week (NNW) in Canada! Thank you to...
Engage your journalists and editors by encouraging them to share their passion for newspapers through their own social media channels.
Share your newspaper with local, regional, provincial and national elected officials! Add them to your subscription list and include a personal note with your paper, highlighting the importance of newspapers.
Find local influencers or spokespeople and ask them to post a photo on their own social media channels, reading a copy of their favourite newspaper.
Rent a local theatre and host a reception / movie screening of the award-winning film Spotlight. On request, News Media Canada will provide a digital copy of the movie and cover the cost of licensing the film to a limited number of participating community newspapers.
Host a contest for the most creative use of newspapers. Check out the parade float the wildly creative staff at the Davidson (SK) Leader debuted at their local town parade last month.
Dedicate a special celebratory page in your newspaper to National Newspaper Week. Include some of your best editorial features over the years, historical archive highlights, and more!
Host a coffee break with your journalists and ask local residents to join you and your staff to “espresso” their opinions.
Connect with local schools in your community to see if there might be opportunities to work together on National Newspaper Week programming. A field trip to the newsroom, perhaps?
