Awards snapped up
COMMUNITY Newspaper Group has flown the flag for WA media at this year’s PANPA Awards, bringing home three of the state’s four trophies from the 2017 Newspaper of the Year Awards and the 2017 Advertising and Marketing Awards.
Photographer Andrew Ritchie was again recognised for his outstanding work behind the camera, with his striking image taken at last year’s Arcadia event at Elizabeth Quay named best Community photo in the Features and Lifestyle category at the Newspaper of the Year Awards.
CNG’s Marketing team took top honours twice at the Advertising and Marketing Awards. Joondalup Weekender’s sponsorship of the City of Joondalup’s Summer events series was named Sponsorship of the Year for Community titles, while the group’s Sox n Jox for Homelessness Week campaign was named Best Cause Related or Community Service Campaign for Community titles.
Chief executive Paul EteenBliss said he was extremely proud of the company’s achievements, which had further cemented the company as an integral part of the local community.
“A lot of hard work has gone into these awards and it’s great for our staff to get the recognition they deserve,” he said.
