The Parksville Qualicum Beach News has once again been recognized by its peers in the category of general excellence, this time on a national level.

The NEWS placed third in its circulation category for Best Overall Newspaper, part of the 2015 Canadian Community Newspaper Association (CCNA) awards announced Friday. Two Alberta publications, The Okotoks Western Wheel and the Fast Forward Weekly (Calgary) finished one-two in The NEWS’ circulation category (12,500 to 24,999).

The only other paper on Vancouver Island to make the top three of its circulation category for Best Overall Newspaper was The NEWS’ sister paper, The Alberni Valley News, which was second in its category (6,500 to 12,499).

The CCNA recognition follows the B.C.-Yukon Newspaper Association announcement last month that The NEWS was one of three finalists in its circulation category for general excellence. Those awards will be handed out in Richmond on April 25.
