Headlines, column writing, website and multimedia project earn recognition for editorial team

The Surrey Now-Leader and its staff have been recognized by News Media Canada with four national community newspaper awards.

The winners of the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards (CCNA) 2019 competition were announced Tuesday morning.

  • The Now-Leader took top spot in the Best Headline Writing category (see winning headlines in photo above).
  • Staff writer Tom Zytaruk earned a second-place finish in the Outstanding Columnist category.
  • The Now-Leader placed third in the Best Website category.
  • And the Now-Leader’s Amy Reid and Lauren Collins earned a second place finish in the Best Multimedia category for their Christmas light map and videos project.

“It really shows the level of dedication and passion among our staff,” said editor Beau Simpson. “Their journalism – both online and in print – is second to none and it’s great to see them being recognized for it.”

The Now-Leader also picked up three provincial awards earlier this year in the BCNYA Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards competition.
