Judges said the Western Sub­urbs Weekly had “a nice blend of news and lifestyle ed­i­to­rial which is laid out cre­atively and with a pleas­ant style”.

“Ex­cel­lent photos, good sto­ries and clean de­sign add up to a very com­plete pack­age,” they said.

“We’ve been recog­nised by CNA for the past four years and we strive to give our read­ers bet­ter con­tent and de­sign each year,” Ms Cahill said.

“It’s an ex­cit­ing year for us, with the news­pa­per re­lo­cat­ing to Clare­mont in the next few months to be part of a thriv­ing re­tail and com­mer­cial hub.”
