The Revelstoke Review brought home two awards from the Ma Murray BC&Yukon Community Newspaper Awards on Saturday.

The Review won bronze for Newspaper Excellence in its circulation category, while cartoonist Rob Buchanan picked up silver.

“These are much deserved awards,” said publisher Mavis Cann. “Alex does a great job at getting out in the community and covering all our local news and events. He has great penmanship and alway writes well balanced informative stories. Rob has been drawing our cartoons for over 20 years and hits many local hot topic issues with his brilliant sense of humour. Not many small community newspaper have the luxury of having such a talented local cartoonist. It is impressive to have staff bring home prestigious awards like this.”

In Newspaper Excellence, judges praised the Review for the “wonderfully diverse local aspect to its extensive editorial coverage.” It finished third behind the North Island Gazette and Hope Standard.

Buchanan won silver for his cartoon of the Netflix flag raised over the Roxy Theatre — parody of the famous photo of U.S. Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima.

“That’s better than a lawsuit,” he joked when asked how it felt to be honoured.
