The ‘Day in the Life of Parksville’ was awarded bronze in the Photo Essay category at the annual Ma Murray Awards held this past weekend in Vancouver. It’s the second year in a row that the special feature has been recognized by the association. The judges commented, “‘A Day in the Life of Parksville’ is a truly memorable photo essay for readers.”
Photographed in summer months, the feature is reflective of everyday events in the area, following the ‘Day in the Life of Canada’ format of capturing communities over a 24-hour period.
The award winning team of photographers were: Randy Hall, Lissa Alexander, Brian Argyle, Michael Briones, Linda Matteson, Lauren Collins, Adam Kveton and Peter McCully. The Parksville Qualicum Beach News has produced seven editions of ‘Day in the Life’ in the Qualicum Beach and Parksville areas. The eighth is being planned for summer 2019.
