Toronto Today picks up two nominations for OCNA’s Better Newspaper Awards

It’s the first time Town Crier Group of Newspapers has picked up a nomination in the Columnist of the Year category at the OCNA’s Better Newspaper Competition Awards.

On Feb. 14, it was announced sister publication Toronto Today was picked for Columnist of the Year (my Game Fixer column) and Surfer’s Selection.

Three of my columns were submitted for “Context is the message”, “Fight the power” and “Respect is due volunteers”. Judges for the award look at a body of work rather than just one story.

Vaughan Today picked up two nominations in the Arts and Entertainment category for Shawn Star’s “A song rising out of tragedy” as well as Surfer’s Selection.

Town Crier snagged three nods, two in the Health and Wellness category for Sharon Ko’s “Time for that talk” and Alima Hotakie for “Living life in the raw – one bite at a time”, along with Business category tip-of-the-hat for colleague Josh Freeman’s Leaside Today piece, “Laird’s new vibe”.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony, April 27.
