It seems like the Comox Valley Record’s lucky number is not three, but four.

That’s the number of awards the newspaper received in the Canadian Community Newspaper Association’s Great Idea Awards 2013, announced Wednesday.

Newspapers Canada notes the award-winning entries demonstrate the most creative and innovative examples of newspaper marketing and promotion from daily and community publications across the country.

The Record finished second in the Newspaper Marketing and Promotion category for sports editor Earle Couper’s Take Us Along layout, while it also garnered a first-place finished in the Advertising – Print category for WinterFest 2012.

In the Special Section category, the Record placed third for comox by the Sea. Liz Tribe was the advertising consultant.

The Record received its second first-place finish in the Print Innovation category with Let’s Eat Comox Valley 2013.

On the editorial side, the CCNA announced in March that Bob Castle, the paper’s editorial cartoonist, has been judged to be the best editorial cartoonist in the country.

The Record also received a blue ribbon in general excellence. A blue ribbon is awarded to newspapers that, in the opinion of a judge, have attained a high level of quality.

The paper is also 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.
