Mission Record nominated for Ma Murray newspaper award

I Love Mission campaign a finalist in Covid Coverage – Advertising category

The Mission Record has been named a top three finalist by the British Columbia Yukon Community Newspaper Association (BCYCNA) for a 2021 Ma Murray Award.

Publisher Karen Murtagh and sales associate Jamie Hayes were nominated in the category of Covid Coverage – Advertising (over 10,000 circulation) for the advertising campaign promoting the I Love Mission program.

I Love Mission was launched in April of 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and how restrictions were impacting local businesses.

I Love Mission allowed people to show their community pride and asked residents to take a stand to buy, eat and support local businesses.

“As publisher of the Mission Record – it was a privilege to be involved with this local I Love Mission collaboration to support Mission-based businesses through the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Murtagh.

The other two nominees in the category are the Pique Newsmagazine and the Victoria News

The winners will be announced during an online celebration set for April 29.
