We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s Gala. On Saturday, May 14, 2022, we will gratefully welcome KPU as the title sponsor of the BCYCNA Ma Murray Awards, where we will celebrate the achievements of our almost 100 member publications. This year marks our centennial anniversary, and thanks to KPU and our other supporting sponsors, we intend to celebrate in style!

Join us as we recognize excellence amongst our members, covering all aspects of the newsmedia industry, including reporting, photography, advertising, community contribution, online excellence, and more.


We are so proud of the work coming out of all the community publications in BC and Yukon, and we hope that all of our members will join us at the River Rock Casino Resort on Saturday, May 14, 2022 to celebrate the finalists — AND to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the BCYCNA!

As always, the top three finalists in each category will be offered a complimentary ticket to attend the Gala, as well as a free night’s stay at the River Rock for the event night, courtesy of the BCYCNA and our generous event sponsors.
