Macleod Gazette wins national awards

The Macleod Gazette recently won three national newspaper awards.
The Gazette won second-place awards for best all-around paper in its circulation category and best editorial page in the Better Newspapers Competition.
The Gazette also won a second-place award for best Web site design.
The Canadian Community Newspapers Association presented the awards during its annual convention last month at Toronto.
“The Macleod Gazette is simply a big, strong, healthy paper that is able to cover its community comprehensively, in part because the volume of advertising allows for a stunning number of pages, in part because the paper has clearly made a commitment to local content,” judge Frances Bula wrote. “It has more original content in it than any other paper in the category.”
“The (Regional), with features and entertainment news, shared among several papers, add to the package,” Brula added. “This seems like a must-read for this town.”
The Flin Flon Reminder placed first in the Best All Around competition for newspapers with a circulation up to 1,240 copies and the Valemont/McBride Rocky Mountain Goat News placed third.
The Gazette place second behind The Packet from Clarenville, Newfoundland for best Web site design for papers with a circulation up to 3,999 copies.
“It was a close one between you and first place,” judge Mike Thomas wrote. “A reader gets a good sense of the community you serve with the events, community and image gallery sidebars.”
The Casket from Antigonish, Nova Scotia placed third in the competition.
