The Ma Murray Awards are an opportunity to recognize the achievements of the association’s 107 member newspapers in British Columbia and Yukon, and this year’s Gala took place on Saturday, May 7, 2016. The BCYCNA is proud to hand out awards in 45 categories – ranging from ad design and classifieds to photography, editorial and newspaper excellence.

The evening, hosted at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, has been called “the Academy Awards of the newspaper industry,” with plenty of good wine and delicious food, VIP treatment, celebrity emcees, open bar, after-party, dancing, and an exclusive penthouse hospitality suite. Next year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

The gala would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.

We have sponsorship opportunities open for the 2017 Ma Murray Awards, giving businesses the chance to network in a room of 300 of the province’s top media professionals as well as advertising and much more.
