Times places third, third and third

The Times took third place for best all-round newspaper in its circulation class (up to 1,249) from CCNA

Canadian Community Newspapers Association has awarded the Clearwater-North Thompson Times third place in three categories in its general excellence competitions.

The Times took third place for best all-round newspaper in its circulation class (up to 1,249) from CCNA.

First place went to the Eastern Door of Kahnawake Mohawk Territory in Quebec. Second place went to the McLeod Gazette of Fort McLeod, Alberta.

The Times also took third place for best editorial page in its circulation class.

This time, first place went to the McLeod Gazette while the Eastern Door came second.

The judging for best front page in its circulation class placed the Times in third place as well.

Once again the Times was behind the McLeod Gazette, which took first place, and the Eastern Door, which was in second.

Blue Ribbon honourable mentions in the general excellence competitions went to the Rocky Mountain Goat of Valemount, Eagle Valley News of Sicamous, Meaford Express of Meaford, Ontario, Caledonia Courier of Fort St. James, B.C., and Fort Qu’Appelle Times of Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan.

Judging for all three general excellence competitions in the up to 1,249 circulation class was by Kate Mallow, editor of the Hill Times in Ottawa.

Last year, the Clearwater-North Thompson Times won first place for best editorial page from CCNA.


In 2014, CCNA awarded the Times first place for best all-round newspaper, first place for best editorial page and second place for best front page in its circulation class.
