CCNAs by company

March 18, 2011

As I did with the Ma Murray Awards, I’ve broken down the CCNA British Columbia and Yukon nominees by media company (Black Press papers in Alberta don’t count, if any of them are nominated).

This time I’ve broken the awards down into four categories: Blue Ribbons and Newspaper Excellence, for which a paper is counted only once, even if they’re nominated for Best Front Page and given Blue Ribbon status; Special newspaper awards (i.e. Outstanding Arts Coverage); Writing; Photography.

Again, I’ll leave interpretations of the results up to the reader. I may have messed up when I did the math, however; if you spot an error, please leave a comment and I’ll fix it.

Here we go:

Newspaper excellence:

Black Press – 20

Postmedia – 8 (incl. one daily)

Glacier – 5 (incl. one daily)

Special newspaper awards:

Black Press – 7

Postmedia – 2

Glacier – 4

Independent (Yukon News) – 4


Black Press – 22

Postmedia – 7

Glacier – 1

Independent (Yukon News) – 7


Black Press – 10

Postmedia – 3

Glacier – 2

Independent (Yukon News) – 2

Have I made an error? It wouldn’t be the first time. Leave a comment and I’ll shamefully update the post.

We’re making inroads into our census of B.C. community newspapers, but there are still a lot of blanks in the Journo-lust Spreadsheet. How many journalists work at your paper? How often do you come out? Who’s your publisher? Participation is free! The benefits unlimited! The exclamation points boundless!
