Judge Comments:

I award an Honorable Mention award to the Iori:Wase image of the house aflame: In photo-news work, flames typically make the cover for the impact such an image makes. This iPhone picture proves that the best camera is the one you have with you in photojournalism.

Judge Comments:


There was a sizable gulf in this category between the cream of the crop and the rest. Several of the entries confused “education story†with “feature story that takes place in a school†or policy-based or politics-based school board stories. Those stories are important, but too often they focus on the minutiae rather than clearly explaining the impact on students, teachers and parents. Those that succeeded here did so by telling compelling stories from multiple points of view that resonated with the reader.

Judge Comments:

The QCNA boasts a fine crop of columnists this year, who engaged me with belly laughs, imagination and, in other cases, sober commentary. Ross Murray and John Zeitoun left me in stitches; Sonny Orr took me along on every ride he described (and I don't mean just on the Ski-Doo trip). All three breathed life into every scene their words painted on my mind. Honourable mention goes to Gil Troy, who hit on all the main points that make political commentary readable.

Judge Comments:

Community newspaper reporters should remember that they — for lack of a better description — are at the coalface of reporting environmental issues in their regions. Local councils, residents and businesses need to be held accountable for decisions they make that impact the environment, many of which are made away from the scrutiny of larger media organizations. Without community newspapers, environmental issues and stories in small towns right across the country would largely go unreported and that can’t be allowed to happen. It’s important to recognize the key role community newspapers play in Canada’s media landscape and if the quality and quantity of entries in this year is anything to go by, there is hope for their future in Quebec and Canada.
