'Citizen' among Ontario's best
On Friday, the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) announced that The Citizen has been nominated in two of the highest categories in its circulation class.
The Citizen is one of three nominees in the category of general excellence in the circulation class of 1,999 and under.
Also nominated in the category are The Valley Gazette from Barry’s Bay and The Minden Times.
The Citizen, by way of its parent company North Huron Publishing, has also been named in the top three for best community website with a circulation under 9,999. The Citizen’s website is also home to sister publications The Rural Voice and Stops Along The Way, as well as an extensive history archive.
In this category, The Citizen is joined by The Huntsville Forester and The Manitoulin Expositor.
The winners and ranking of the nominees will be announced at the OCNA’s Better Newspapers Competition on Friday, April 22 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Vaughan.
This comes after The Citizen was honoured with three Canadian Community Newspaper Awards early last year for its work in 2014 in three categories, including general excellence for its circulation class.
