Better Newspapers Competition

The Better Newspapers Competition is held each year from coast to coast, at both the provincial and national levels. It is the industry’s chance to realize excellence among its peers. It is also a celebration of the vibrancy and health of community newspapers in Saskatchewan and across Canada. Each year, the member papers of the Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association submit hundreds of entries showcasing their talent.

The 2024 Call for Nominations is now Open! 

The Better Newspaper Competition is open to all SWNA member newspapers and anyone who is an employee, or a freelancer commissioned by an SWNA member newspaper. The Call for Entries package, which contains the full list of categories, rules and information on how to enter, can be found here.

The deadline to submit entries is January 26, 2024.

This year’s Better Newspaper Competition Virtual Awards Presentation will be held in the spring of 2024 with a date to be announced at a later time.
