The Gazette team made good on several nominations earlier this year at the Ontario Community Newspaper Association 2023 Better Newspapers Competition.

The new publishers, who took over in May of last year, netted three medals for the paper in their first foray into provincial competition, and two honourable mentions.

In the Premier Awards category, Karen Valihora’s Post Media: When No News is Good News (July 6, 2023) placed second overall for Best Editorial in a newspaper with circulation over 10,000. Ms. Valihora also earned third place in the Best Feature/News Series for a series of articles on Picton Terminals in June of last year.

Editor Jason Parks’ front page photo of a PECI Rugby player on June 15 earned third place in the Sports Photo of the Year category.

Chris Fanning earned an honourable mention in Arts & Entertainment for Heavenly Harmonies: PEC Chamber Music Festival 2023 in Review (Sept. 27). 

The paper also picked up an honourable mention for Best Front Page for its September 21 issue — the first to feature the paper’s redesign by Jed Tallo. 

The articles are available in our Special Collection.
