WE are the best, again.

On Saturday night Central Telegraph travelled to Brisbane for the annual Queensland Country Press Association awards and returned home with the highest honour - Best Newspaper with a circulation under 10,000.

This is the second year running that your local newspaper has claimed the top prize.

Central Telegraph managing editor Cameron McCrohon said after winning last year and with the number of improvements made during the past 12 months, he thought they had a chance of retaining the title.

“But you just never know and the competition was pretty tight this year.”

He said winning the award was recognition for the tireless efforts put in by everybody associated with the newspaper.

Central Telegraph has a great team and special mention must go our community champions, our correspondents who dish up news from their respective towns every week.”

In addition to the top gong Central Telegraph was recognised for it's journalistic excellence with a second placing.

QCPA judge Max Tomlinson said the Telegraph was a busy, clean-looking journal built on a solid base of local news.

Its wide readership catchment area is well covered by the old-fashioned but effective use of stringers in each of the major satellite districts.

The paper use pictures well and there is a high level of adherence to editorial standards.

Other awards: Special publication (third) - Callide Valley, it's Your Backyard third; Sports photograph (second) - Cameron McCrohon; Advertising campaign (third) - Active Motorcycles.
