Running with the big dogs

Re: Running with the big dogs r1 ... Dear PAOV,

On Thursday morning, I woke before my alarm and immediately opened my laptop, anxious to see this year’s nominees for Canada’s Digital Publishing Awards.

Then I saw this chart.

I swear my heart stopped for a second before galloping forward.

I could hardly believe what was before my eyes. Less than two years into operation, The Narwhal is nominated for eight Digital Publishing Awards — behind only The Globe and Mail and CBC.

Immediately, my mind turned to you: our most loyal readers. The truth is we wouldn’t be here without you. Every single one of you who reads and shares our articles is a crucial part of building a new model for Canadian journalism that puts people before profit. Thank you!
