Revelstoke Review nominated for 5 provincial newspaper awards

The publication is one of the most nominated at this year’s Ma Murrays

The Revelstoke Review has been nominated for five Ma Murray Awards.

The awards are presented by the B.C. and Yukon Community NewsMedia Association and recognize excellence in community newspapers.

This year, the Revelstoke Review is a contender for overall excellence based on its circulation size (which it won last year for the first time in 16 years), an environment writing award for a story on the city’s decades-long struggle to provide bear-proof garbage bins, a feature award for a deep-dive into overdose deaths in Revelstoke, a series on local inspiring women and the Hungry Toque cookbook.

The Revelstoke Review is one of the most nominated newspapers at the Ma Murrays this year, out of more than 150 publications.

Last year, the newspaper took home four awards.

Ma Murray was an American-Canadian newspaper editor, publisher, columnist, and officer of the Order of Canada. Her editorials were famously signed off with the catchphrase “And that’s fer damshur!” She died in 1982 at the age of 94. The Ma Murray Awards are almost a century old and regarded as the provincial newspaper awards for B.C.
