Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Western Sub­urbs Weekly is in the run­ning to be judged best com­mu­nity news­pa­per in Aus­tralia for an un­prece­dented fourth straight year.

The pa­per was last week named a fi­nal­ist in the 2015 Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers of Aus­tralia (south­ern divi­sion) award for Best News­pa­per (30,00050,000 copies).

That’s the same award the highly dec­o­rated pub­li­ca­tion col­lected in 2012, 2013 and 2014, with the pa­per also go­ing on to claim the na­tional prize in each of those years.

Fel­low Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group pub­li­ca­tion Man­durah Coastal Times is a fi­nal­ist in the same cat­e­gory, while sis­ter pa­per Guardian Ex­press is a fi­nal­ist in the un­der 30,000 copies cat­e­gory.

Long-serv­ing Western Sub­urbs Weekly pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew Ritchie is in with a triple-shot at CNA glory af­ter snar­ing three nom­i­na­tions.

South­ern sub­urbs col­league Jon Hew­son also has three im­ages in the awards mix.
