Independent reporter wins national award


Josh Howald’s entry in the Best Spot News Photo in the Canadian Community Newspapers awards was judged number 2 in the country.


The first place photo was entered by Kathy Johnson of the Shelburne/Barrington Coast Guard in Nova Scotia. Third place went to Chris Bolster of the Powell River Peak in British Columbia.


The Kincardine Independent was also awarded a Blue Ribbon for being one of top newspapers in its circulation class.


The awards were presented at the annual CCNA convention, held last week in Charlottetown, PEI.
