On June 8, the staff of The Equity travelled to Mont Gabriel Resort in St. Adele, Qc. for the Quebec Community Newspaper Association’s (QCNA) Better Newspapers Competiton and came home with a good bit of hardware.
The QCNA represents the province’s English-language community papers, and the competition offers workshops and networking sessions for those in the business.
Though the organizers saved the announcement till the end of the evening, the highlight of the awards ceremony was former Equity publisher and owner Rosaleen Dickson being posthumously recognized with the Lindsay Crysler Outstanding Achievement Award, the QCNA’s most prestigious honour.
The award recognizes those who have made outstanding contributions to the community newspaper industry, and there are likely few as qualified as her.
