The Nanaimo News Bulletin’s feature writing received provincial accolades this past weekend.
News Bulletin reporter Karl Yu won first place in the Feature Article, 25,000-plus circulation category, at the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association’s Ma Murray Awards on Saturday in Richmond.
Yu won for a piece titled ‘Nanaimo parent advocates for support,’ which looked at prohibitive costs a Nanaimo parent was facing for specialized care for a daughter with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
News Bulletin reporter Tamara Cunningham was awarded second place, also in the Feature Article, 25,000-plus circulation category. Her piece, ‘Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District taking initial steps to reconciliation,’ looked at the shift to bring indigenous culture and ways of knowing into the school system.
Black Press Media newspapers took home 66 awards at the 2018 B.C. and Yukon Newspapers awards.
