The North Grenville Times has been shortlisted in two categories for the Ontario Community Newspapers Association [OCNA] Better Newspapers Competition for 2020. The Times has been nominated in two categories: Heritage (story: A Forgotten Memorial), and Best Community Website/WebPortal, (circulation under 9,999).
In each category, we are one of three finalists, and the announcement of First, Second, and Third place will be made in April. OCNA stated in announcing the finalists that the organisation was “proud to recognize the outstanding quality of work produced each week by our member newspapers”. Founded in 1950, and based in Toronto, the OCNA is a non-profit industry association comprising roughly 240 member newspapers located throughout the province. These include, not only independent community newspapers, such as the NG Times, but also publications by the major media corporations, such as Postmedia.
Given the standard and size of the competition, the NG Times is very proud to have been recognised once again in these nominations.
