This photograph of the White Sox celebrating their victory in the Campbell River Minor Baseball peewee championship is in the running for one of the top sports photos of the year in Canada. Mirror photographer Paul Rudan captured the image last June at Nunns Creek Park. The picture is one of the three finalists for best sports photo in the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards.

Mirror staffers up for awards

Two Campbell River Mirror staff members are up for newspaper industry awards.

Advertising sales rep Cynthia Dunsmore has been nominated for a BCYCNA Ma Murray Award for  Perfect Ad Design Award – Collaborative and news editor Paul Rudan has been nominated for a Canadian Community Newspapers award for Best Sports Photo (above).

These awards are taken out of hundreds of entries from across the province and across the country. The nominations mean the duo will win first, second or third place in their category which will be revealed at conventions later in the spring.

Congratulations to Dunsmore and Rudan.
