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.
