Interrobang has placed second in general excellence (college/university paper) for the 2019 Better Newspapers Competition of the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA).
The criteria for the award is based on the quality of the newspaper’s front page, news, opinion, local sports sections, as well as presentation, photography, and advertising content and design.
Interrobang won with its November 2018 and March 2019 issues.
“I’m so proud of our publications team. Being recognized for a general excellence award speaks to the whole of our team. From our editing team, graphics team, photographers, illustrators and writers,” said the FSU’s publications and communications manager, John Said.
“The work we do as a student publication, informing and educating our readers about the things that matter most to them and our community is relevant. It’s important for the Fanshawe community to understand the quality, care and effort that goes into producing the Interrobang, and being recognized by the OCNA is a validation of that work.”
Interrobang also earned an honourable mention in the Student Feature Writing category, for Emma Fairgrieve’s and Angela McInnes’ article on the controversial screening of anti-abortion film Unplanned.
