The Carillon has been named as the best all-around newspaper in its class in the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards.

The awards, judged from entries published in 2017 from newspapers across the country, were announced on Monday.

The paper also won first place honours for best editorial page and earned a third place win for best front page in its class.

Carillon editor Grant Burr collected first place recognition for best national editorial, after penning a Nov. 30, 2017 piece which criticized Provencher MP Ted Falk’s response following the Liberal government’s historic apology to LGBTQ federal workers.

The work of Carillon sports editor Terry Frey was also rewarded, as the paper scored second place honours in its class for its sports coverage.

Two specific Carillon photographs also caught the eyes of judges. Former reporter Adriana Mingo was recognized with a second place award in the best spot news category for a photo of the over the top excitement during an arm-wrestling competition at Lorette’s winter carnival. Reporter Jordan Ross also lassoed a third place win in the best feature photo category for a scene from the Morris Stampede capturing chariot racing action.

Earlier this spring, The Carillon won 11 provincial awards in the Manitoba Community Newspapers Association's annual awards competition.
