The Canadian Community Newspaper Awards celebrate the best in community publishing from across the country. Newspapers of similar circulation size compete against each other and are judged by a panel of industry experts. With a diverse array of awards categories covering editorial, photography and multimedia, the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards offer learning opportunities for publications of all sizes.
The Canadian Community Newspaper Awards (CCNAwards) are back and better than ever before. English- and French-language community newspapers across the country are invited to compete in News Media Canada’s annual awards competition, which celebrates the very best in community journalism.
New in 2019:
- The competition is open to members and non-members of News Media Canada;
- English- and French-language competitions will be adjudicated separately (subject to a sufficient number of entries in both competitions).
