The Pontiac Journal won nominations in the Best Editorial Page category, as well as Best Community Newspaper Promotion.  The Bulletin d’Aylmer received its first-ever nomination for Best Overall Newspaper in Quebec, and garnered nominations for its editorial page, special sections, advertising, and website.
The work of individual journalists at the Journal, Bulletin and West Quebec Post were also recognized. The Journal’s editor Allyson Beauregard won a nomination for Best Editorial, general topic,
and Laurent Robillard-Cardinal received three nominations, Best Feature Series, Best Agricultural Story and Best French-language News Story; Lily Ryan, co-publisher and editor of the Bulletin and Post, was nominated for Best Editorial, local affairs.
The Journal swept the Best French-language editorial category — Dominique Bomans and François Carrier, both won nominations, and Mr Carrier won a nod
