AWARD NATIONAL NEWSPAPER

NATIONAL NEWSPAPER AWARDS

The National Newspaper Awards were created in 1949 by the Toronto Men’s Press Club with the financial and moral support of C. George McCullagh who gave $3000 a year for the first five years to help establish an awards fund. C. George McCullagh was owner of the Globe and Mail and the Evening Telegram. Since 1989, the awards have been governed by a Board of Governors representing both daily newspapers and the public. The awards are administered by the Canadian Daily Newspaper Awards Program Administration Corporation.

An NNA was awarded for excellence in editorial cartooning for a single cartoon or body of work up to three cartoons. Other awards were given for: editorial writing, spot news reporting, feature writing, staff corresponding, spot news photography and feature photography. Sports writing was added in 1957.
