The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard has earned seven nom­i­na­tions for News­pa­pers At­lantic’s 2018 Bet­ter News­pa­pers Com­pe­ti­tion. This year’s nom­i­na­tions in­clude:

Last year, The Stan­dard gar­nered five nom­i­na­tions in its in­au­gu­ral year in the as­so­ci­a­tion. At the awards night, Josh Kaiser walked away with Out­stand­ing Car­toon for his de­pic­tion of the news­pa­per’s own­er­ship tran­si­tion be­tween Jim Mor­row and An­drew Brooks.

“We are hon­oured to be rec­og­nized by our peers for the work we have been do­ing since tak­ing over The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard. It is par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing to break into the ed­i­to­rial con­tent awards this year [in­ves­tiga­tive, ed­i­to­rial]. We know that the vis­ual qual­ity of the news­pa­per is im­por­tant to read­ers, but we also want to make sure we’re writ­ing pieces that are mean­ing­ful and en­gag­ing,” said pub­lisher An­drew Brooks upon re­lease of this year’s stand­ing fi­nal­ists.

The awards gala will take place in Hal­i­fax on June 1.

News­pa­pers At­lantic is the trade as­so­ci­a­tion for 39 com­mu­nity news­pa­pers across the eastern re­gion. The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard is one of five news­pa­pers still in­de­pen­dently owned and op­er­ated.
