COM­MU­NITY News has notched up an im­pres­sive eight nominations in the 2018 News Me­dia Awards.

The Gazette’s sis­ter pa­per the Stir­ling Times was nom­i­nated for Com­mu­nity News Brand of the Year in the an­nual na­tional awards, the only WA news­pa­per nom­i­nated in ei­ther com­mu­nity, re­gional, daily or week­end news Brand of the Year cat­e­gories.

The Times’ sub­mis­sion in­cluded our group’s front­page launch of the 2017 lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tion voter turnout cam­paign, a cam­paign that has also notched up a News Me­dia Award nom­i­na­tion.

The cam­paign, which was hon­oured with a nom­i­na­tion for Best Com­mu­nity or So­cial-Pur­pose Ini­tia­tive, was a group-wide edi­to­rial-led ini­tia­tive to im­prove voter turnout in last year’s lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions.

In other notable nominations, our in­sights and strat­egy di­rec­tor Guy Turner was nom­i­nated for News Me­dia Ex­ec­u­tive of the Year. Turner has played a key role in sev­eral col­lab­o­ra­tions since 2017.

Com­mu­nity News’ work with Sports Edge to cover the WAFL is one such part­ner­ship.

The part­ner­ship was also been nom­i­nated for In­no­va­tion of the Year.
