THE Queens­land Coun­try Press Awards were hosted in Red­cliffe last Fri­day night, with the Dalby Her­ald com­ing out of the cer­e­mony with mul­ti­ple awards.

The Her­ald claimed first place in the Best News­pa­per Sup­ple­ment – Stand Alone cat­e­gory for All School News. It’s the third year in a row the pub­li­ca­tion has taken out that award.

The Ul­ti­mate Real Es­tate Guide also gained a highly com­mended in the same cat­e­gory.

The news­pa­per also was awarded sec­ond place in the Over­all Jour­nal­is­tic Ex­cel­lence Award – Weighted sec­tion.

The an­nual Car­i­ca­ture Cal­en­dar, by the tal­ented Graeme McCul­lough, placed third in the Best Spe­cial Pub­li­ca­tion cat­e­gory and the fea­ture on Myall Med­i­cal Prac­tice came third in the Best Com­mer­cial Fea­ture.

Dalby Her­ald me­dia sales man­ager Nicole McDougall said it had been a great year for the news­pa­per.

“It’s al­ways nice to be recog­nised by the in­dus­try for the hard work we put into not only our pa­per, but all of the ex­tras we like to bring our read­ers,” Mrs McDougall said.

“All School News has blos­somed since its in­cep­tion three years ago and has been re­pro­duced in other mar­kets since.

“Our whole team en­joys be­ing in­volved putting it to­gether and the school chil­dren love par­tic­i­pat­ing and see­ing their work pub­lished.

“The awards are a great night to see what our peers are achiev­ing in the in­dus­try and are a bench­mark for us to achieve.”

Jour­nal­ist Michael Doyle had a suc­cess­ful night in­di­vid­u­ally, tak­ing home the award for Best News Photo for his front-page shot of a young boy stand­ing in front of the fire-rav­aged Dalby State School and the award for Best Com­mu­nity Photo for his pic­ture of the statue in An­zac Park.

Michael also came third in the Young Jour­nal­ist of the Year cat­e­gory and sec­ond in the Best Com­mu­nity Photo sec­tion.

Other items that did well in­cluded the Su­rat Basin News, which won the Best Com­mer­cial Fea­ture.
