Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

THE West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly has been crowned Best News­pa­per at the Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers of Aus­tralia awards for the fifth con­sec­u­tive year.

The Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group pub­li­ca­tion was an­nounced win­ner of the south­ern divi­sion awards in the 30,0001-50,000 cir­cu­la­tion cat­e­gory in Mel­bourne on Fri­day night.

The na­tional win­ners will be an­nounced tonight, with the news­pa­per vy­ing for a fourth con­sec­u­tive na­tional prize.

Editor Denise Cahill said the strong team­work be­tween the ed­i­to­rial and sales de­part­ments cre­ated and con­tin­ued the win­ning for­mula.

“More than ever our ed­i­to­rial and sales teams are work­ing to­gether in our west­ern sub­urbs com­mu­nity to get the best re­sults for read­ers and ad­ver­tis­ers,” Ms Cahill said.

“The awards are a credit to the en­tire team from jour­nal­ists, sub ed­i­tors and sales reps to pho­tog­ra­phers and de­sign­ers.

“There’s a real buzz at the pa­per at the mo­ment as ev­ery­one rel­ishes the com­pe­ti­tion and chal­lenge of com­bin­ing print and dig­i­tal me­dia.”

West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew Ritchie re­ceived two Highly Com­mended ac­co­lades at the Pa­cific Area News­pa­per Pub­lish­ers' As­so­ci­a­tion (PANPA) News­pa­per of the Year awards in Syd­ney on Fri­day night.

Ritchie’s work ti­tled Na­tive Amer­i­can and a photo from this year’s Hop­man Cup caught the judges’ eyes in the fea­tures and life­style, and sport cat­e­gories.

Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group south­ern sub­urbs pho­tog­ra­pher Jon Hew­son won the por­trait cat­e­gory at PANPA and took out the news and sport cat­e­gories at the Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers of Aus­tralia awards in Mel­bourne.

The com­pany’s trades and ser­vices web­site also col­lected a gong at PANPA’s Ad­ver­tis­ing and Mar­ket­ing Awards for Trade Cam­paign of the Year.
