Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

THEN Prime Min­is­ter John Howard, Curtin MHR Julie Bishop, for­mer Pre­mier Ge­off Gal­lop and Cottesloe MLA Colin Bar­nett were among dig­ni­taries who con­grat­u­lated this news­pa­per on its first in­ter­na­tional award 15 years ago.

The Western­sub­urb­sweekly was named News­pa­per of the Year in the non-daily free cat­e­gory at the an­nual Pa­cific Area News­pa­per Pub­lish­ers’ Association awards on Au­gust 14, 2002.

The news­pa­per is vy­ing for the same award this year. Win­ners will be an­nounced on Septem­ber 6.

In 2002, Mr Bar­nett com­mended the Western­sub­urb­sweekly for its com­mit­ment to qual­ity.

“Your news­pa­per and its hard­work­ing team are wor­thy win­ners of this pres­ti­gious award,” he said.

Last week, Mr Bar­nett said the news­pa­per continued to pro­vide lo­cal res­i­dents with a blend of lo­cal news, arts, fash­ion and sto­ries of peo­ple and events in our sub­urbs.

“The qual­ity of pho­tog­ra­phy and pro­duc­tion is out­stand­ing,” he said.

Western­sub­urb­sweekly’s Lux­ury Life­style liftout from Novem­ber 2016 is a fi­nal­ist in the PANPA 2017 Ad­ver­tis­ing and Mar­ket­ing Awards.

Last month, pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew Ritchie won Best Sports Photo at the na­tional Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers’ of Aus­tralia awards and deputy editor Belinda Cipri­ano claimed the Clubs WA me­dia award with her story on WA women’s foot­ball trail­blazer Jan Cooper.
