'Citizen' website wins provincial gold - April 26, 2018
The Citizen was honoured provincially on Friday night with a first-place finish in the Ontario Community Newspaper Association’s Better Newspapers Competition.
The newspaper placed first in the Best Community Website category for newspapers with a circulation under 9,999 in 2017. The Parry Sound North Star placed second behind The Citizen, followed by The Huntsville Forester in third and The Fort Frances Times, which received an honourable mention.
The Citizen was nominated in the same category in 2015, but finished third. With a circulation of approximately 2,000, The Citizen was in the same category as newspapers with circulation up to five times larger, but prevailed regardless.
