Journal article receives recognition

'Camels in the Cariboo' from September 2016 placed third in its category at the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards.

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Journal has won recognition at the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards (CCNA), given annually in a variety of categories for newspapers across Canada with a circulation of 25,000 or less.

The awards were announced on April 18, and The Journal was awarded third place in “Best History Piece (Circulation up to 3,999)” for the story “Camels in the Cariboo”, which appeared as part of the “Golden Country: Past, Present, and Beyond” bi-weekly series in September 2016.

The CCNA website states that “The Canadian Community Newspaper Awards celebrate the best in community publishing from across the country. Newspapers of similar circulation size compete against each other and are judged by a panel of industry experts.”

The Journal is honoured by this recognition for a piece of writing about a small but important piece of the history of the Interior of British Columbia.
