The team at The Courier are buzzing in our bubbles today, as we’ve been named a finalist in the Voyager Media Awards Community Newspaper of the Year category.
The Courier is one of six finalists in the category, and one of four Allied Press publications to get the nod – joining The Star (Dunedin), Mountain Scene (Queenstown) and the Oamaru Mail.
The two other finalists are Kapiti News and The Beacon.
Other Allied Press finalists announced to date are Oamaru Mail reporter Gus Patterson, for community journalist of the year, and Southern Rural Life, best trade/specialist publication, free magazine and/or website.
Winners will be announced at an online awards evening in May.
