Peace Arch News up for B.C./Yukon awards
For the sixth straight year, Peace Arch News has been named as a finalist in the general excellence category of the BC & Yukon Community Newspaper Association’s 2014 Ma Murray Awards.
Peace Arch News – which has won ‘gold’ for the past three years – is again one of three finalists in its circulation class, along with Kamloops This Week and Vancouver Courier.
PAN reporter Tracy Holmes is also up for a Ma Murray Award as one of three nominees for her editorial titled “Beyond the surface,” about well-known White Rock homeless man Ryan Ashe, who died last year.
And PAN salesperson Judi Clint and graphic artist Danielle Billingsley are nominated for the ‘ad design award’ for large-circulation newspapers, for their Home Again Home Again advertisement.
The award winners will be announced April 26 at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond.
