The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News earned second- and third-place distinctions at the Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards on the weekend.

Monisha Martins and Robert Mangelsdorf came second in the investigative journalism category for their efforts on the death of Amanda Todd.

“A sensitive and touching account of the tragedy, but one that also shone a light on the underbelly of the online world and the bullies who lurk there,” wrote the judges.

Colleen Flanagan placed third for her black and white feature photo of a mother bottle-feeding her child.

“This is a great example of why available light is almost always preferable. A sensitive and tender moment, conveyed well.”

The B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Association is a non-profit membership organization representing 125 community newspapers throughout British Columbia and the Yukon, with a combined readership of over two million.
