Capital News editorial staff members are up for four awards at two upcoming newspaper industry editorial contests.

Reporter Judie Steeves has been nominated in the category of best agriculture story in the Canadian Community Newspapers Association editorial contest for her feature about the decline of the irrigation districts in the Okanagan.

In the same contest, photographer Sean Connor is nominated in the best feature photo category along with  Jon Borgstrom of the Georgetown/Acton (Ont.) Independent/Free Press, and Don Denton of the Victoria News

In the B.C./Yukon Community Newspaper Association editorial competition, Steeves and Connor are also nominated for awards. Steeves is nominated—along with Cheryl Rossi of the Vancouver Courier and Vivian Belik of the Whitehorse, Yukon News—in the business writing category for her feature on the growth of the Okanagan wine industry.

Connor is nominated in the photo essay category for his feature on RCMP’s efforts to crackdown on gang criminal activity, nominated along with Jenna Hauck, from the Chilliwack Progress and Susan Lundy from the Gulf Islands Driftwood.

The Capital News has also been nominated for its circulation category for best overall community newspaper along with the Naniamo News Bulletin and Surrey, North Delta Leader. The Capital News won this award last year.
