Host newspaper wins colour award

PANPA editorial co-ordinator BRETT TAYLOR files from the Victorian Country Press Association conference that began this morning.

Local newspaper SN Weekly has achieved recognition in the Norske Skog Best Use of Colour awards at the VCPA annual conference in Shepparton.

The free weekly, run by the Shepparton News, took out the “Over 10,000” circulation category, in which the Warrnambool Extra was highly commended.

The Wangaratta Chronicle won the 3,000 to 10,000 division, with Wimmera Mail-Times highly commended.

The sub-3,000 category belonged to the Mansfield Courier, while a previous winner in that breakdown, the Ararat Advertisier, achieved a highly commended recognition.

Awards for overall newspaper excellence, photography and journalism will be awarded at tonight’s presentation dinner.

PANPA will publish full results by midnight.
