Mirror brings home awards

Add two more awards to the Campbell River Mirror’s trophy shelf.

At the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards in Vancouver last Friday, Mirror reporter and photographer Paul Rudan captured first place for Best Sports Photo in the top circulation class (12,500 and over).

The photograph showed the joy of the White Sox baseball team players after they won the house league championship last June at Nunns Creek Park.

Rudan has won several national and provincial awards, for both photography and writing, during his 20-plus years at the Mirror.

The next night in Vancouver, at the Ma Murray Awards for B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association, the Mirror took second place for Best Collaborative Ad in the over 25,000 circulation class.

The silver went to Mirror advertising representative Cynthia Dunsmore and creative consultant Rachael Beckley who teamed up to create an eye-popping ad to promote a paint sale at the local Home Hardware store.

Dunsmore has been with the Mirror for 23 years – with a brief time away to raise her three children – and Beckley has worked at the newspaper for 15 years.
