The Canadian Church Press 2017 award of merits were released. While I did not win an award, the Huron Church News had a third place award for in-depth coverage of a news event. It is for the coverage of coadjutor bishop election of Feb. 13, 2016 (printed in our April edition). The April edition can be viewed here, HCN-4-InDepthNews I share the byline with Sandra Coulson.
My column, “Media Bytes”, was also entered but alas won no awards. The comments back from the judges though were, “Once again, if there were more than three prizes to award I could give half of the entries on this competition an award. Consistently interesting and highly readable.”
