The entire staff here at the Bainbridge Island Review – including yours truly – cleaned up at this year’s Better Newspaper Contest, sponsored by the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association.

The Review won 29 awards this year, in nearly every category we entered, including  12 first-place awards, five second-place awards and another dozen third-place awards.

Check out all our accolades here. 

The competition included 2,142 entries in six divisions from newspapers across Washington state. The contest period covered newspaper editions from April 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016, and entries were judged by members of the New York Press Association.
