The Williams Lake Tribune was once again an award winner this past Saturday night at the BC and Yukon Community Newspapers Association’s (BCYCNA) 2013 Ma Murray Awards.

Tribune sports editor Greg Sabatino garnered a gold medal in the feature photo, colour, under 25,000 circulation category for his ‘Toughin it out through the dust’ Williams Lake Stampede mountain horse race photo. The judges said: “Planning, action, timing plus a little luck equals a unique, one-of-a-kind great image.”

The Outlook West Vancouver’s Rob Newell took silver, while the Coast Reporter’s Justin Samson won bronze.

The awards banquet and gala was hosted in Richmond at the River Rock Casino Resort’s River Rock Show Theatre.
