Judges praise pa­per’s ap­proach

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

For the third suc­ces­sive year, Kapi-Mana News has been named as one of the lead­ing com­mu­nity news­pa­pers in New Zealand.

We won the Canon award in 2013 and have been a fi­nal­ist for the past two years.

Judges Jim Ea­gles and Mike Fletcher said that at a time when tra­di­tional news me­dia was un­der pres­sure, it was great to see there were still plenty of com­mu­nity news­pa­pers that served their read­ers with skill, en­thu­si­asm and flair.

They said of Kapi-Mana News: ‘‘It cov­ers its catch­ments very well – not only with con­sis­tently good sto­ries, but also thought­ful ed­i­to­rial com­ment and a rich har­vest of read­ers’ let­ters, and de­serves to be ac­knowl­edged.’’

There are about 200 com­mu­nity news­pa­pers in New Zealand.

The 2015 win­ner, an­nounced on May 22, was Moun­tain Scene of Queen­stown.
