The Revelstoke Review won four categories at the provincial community newspaper awards on April 25.
The Ma Murray Awards are presented by the B.C. and Yukon Community NewsMedia Association and recognizes excellence in community newspapers.
This year, Revelstoke Review won gold in overall excellence based on its circulation size. The judges said the newspaper was a good reflection of Revelstoke with great photography and an overall professional look. It is the first time since 2004 the Review has finished first in that category.

Another gold was presented to the newspaper for an article published last fall on the new bike trail at Sunnyside and rising conflict between nearby residents and bikers.
Two bronze were also presented to the Revelstoke Review; one for its ad campaign for Moonlight Madness last fall and another for a feature photo of athletes with spinal injuries paddling away from their wheelchairs as they journeyed from Revelstoke to Nelson last summer.
