The Leader named as finalist in Ma Murray awards competition

Journalists lauded for photography and feature writing.

Surrey-North Delta Leader journalists have been named finalists in three categories of the 2016 B.C.-Yukon Community Newspaper Association’s (BCYCNA) Ma Murray competition.

Boaz Joseph’s photo (above) of a participant at Surrey’s Color Me Rad run in a cloud of purple powder is in the top three for the Colour Feature Photo Award. Joseph is also a finalist in the Sports Photo category, for his picture of a saddle bronc rider in the dirt beneath his horse at the 2015 Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair.

Sheila Reynolds’ string of stories entitled Caring for Kids – about the specialized services provided to children and youth at Surrey Memorial Hospital – is a top-three finalist in the Feature Series Award category.

The provincewide Ma Murray journalism contest recognizes the best in production, publishing, reporting, photography, editing, advertising and community contribution.

The winners will be announced May 7 at River Rock Casino in Richmond.
