**UPDATE: October 21, 2021**
The News Media Canada board of directors strongly supports the need to recognize the work that community newspapers do to serve their communities, and to acknowledge the dedication of journalists and other staff particularly during the pandemic. With that in mind, the CCNAwards will be undergoing a review and will be relaunched in Spring 2022. Members can expect the call for entries in April.
The 2022 competition will accept works from 2020 and 2021.

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).
