The News Leader Pictorial is up for four honours from the British Columbia/Yukon Community Newspaper Association this year.

The paper received four nominations in the annual Ma Murray awards, recognizing the best the industry had to offer for the province this year.

Longtime sports editor Don Bodger was nominated twice — once for his writing and another time for his community service.

The first was in the business writing category for a piece on hockey stick repair, the second for the Georgina Falt Memorial Mind Games Music Trivia night he staged to support the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.

Meanwhile, Andrew Leong received a nod in the spot news photography category for an image he captured at a Crofton car wreck last fall.

Finally, the paper was also one of three finalists in its circulation category for general excellence.

Also from the valley, the Cowichan Valley Citizen received two nominations — Andrea Rondeau in the feature photo category and Sarah Simpson in the business writing category.

Winners will be announced at the Ma Murray Awards Gala, April 26, at the River Rock Casino Resort.
