Two Victoria News staffers have won major awards through national and provincial newspaper associations.
Editor Kevin Laird placed third for national editorial writing for a piece he did on foreign workers. The honour was bestowed on him by the Canadian Newspapers Association.
Last weekend photographer Don Denton earned a third place standing for feature photos presented by the B.C. Yukon Newspaper Association. The picture was of someone getting a pie in the face at a United Way event last November.
The awards are among many that Laird and Denton have garnered throughout their careers.
