Castle earns another first place for editorial cartoons, Comox Valley Record getting blue ribbon

Comox Valley Record editorial cartoonist Bob Castle has been judged to be the best editorial cartoonist in the country.

RECORD EDITORIAL CARTOONIST Bob Castle has earned a national award for his work.

Not for the first time, Comox Valley Record editorial cartoonist Bob Castle has been judged by the Canadian Community Newspaper Association to be the best editorial cartoonist in the country.

The Comox Valley Record yet again received a blue ribbon in general excellence as the CCNA announced finalists this week for this year’s annual awards.

A blue ribbon is awarded to newspapers that, in the opinion of a judge, have attained a high level of quality.

Other Black Press papers on Vancouver Island receiving blue ribbons in the same circulation category are the Goldstream News Gazette in Victoria, Peninsula News Review in Sidney and the Parksville/Qualicum Beach News.

The Record is a finalist for a Ma Murray general excellence award when the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association awards are presented April 20 in Richmond.
