The Mission Record has been named as one of Canada’s top newspapers.

The Record received four honours from News Media Canada’s 2019 Canadian Community Newspaper Awards including a second place finish in the Best All-Round Newspaper in Canada category (circulation of 6,500 to 12,499).

Alberta’s Rocky Mountain Outlook, which serves Canmore, Banff and the surrounding area took first place, while the Cochrane Eagle, also from Alberta, was third.

Along with this honour, the Record also received a second place finish for Best Editorial Page, losing out to Ontario’s The Highlander newspaper. The Alberni Valley News took third spot.

In the Best Front Page category, The Record finished in third place, behind the Nelson Star and the Rocky Mountain Outlook.

Mission’s final honour came in the Best Feature Photo category.

Photographer Bob Friesen was awarded third place for his amazing photo from the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival.

The Mountain View Gazette and the Olds Albertan, both from Alberta, finished in first and second respectively.
