Rob Buchanan's shopping centre cartoon finished third at the 2016 Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards.

The Revelstoke Review won silver in its circulation category, while cartoonist Rob Buchanan won bronze at the 2016 Ma Murray Awards.

The Review finished runner-up to the Oliver Chronicle for Newspaper Excellence in category B of the Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards, which were handed out at the River Rock Casino in Richmond, B.C., on Saturday, May 7.

Judges called the Review “a dynamic looking paper that has much style as substance.” The front page and arts & entertainment section were singled out for praise.

“2015 was a big year for our paper. We changed our name to the Review and launched a new design, while continuing to do our best to cover the community,” said editor Alex Cooper. “We are very happy to be recognized for our efforts and plan on continuing our work in the future.”

Buchanan finished in third place for his cartoon about the highway shopping centre proposal. First place went to Wyatt Tremblay of the Yukon News.

“Not many small town newspapers have the pleasure of a local cartoonist,” said Cooper. “I look forward to seeing what Rob produces every week, and it’s great to see him recognized as one of the best in B.C.”
