The Rocky Mountain Goat was awarded gold for Newspaper Excellence again this year, and racked up a silver medal and two bronze medals for its other nominations. This is the fourth time in eight years the Goat has won gold for newspaper excellence in its circulation category (up to 1,600 weekly print circulation). Newspaper excellence acknowledges excellence in all parts of the paper including ad sales, ad design, editorial, photography, layout and more.

The Goat received silver for a photo essay compiled by Andru McCracken, Laura Keil and Andrea Arnold showcasing people “making the best” of the COVID situation last spring.

Andru McCracken received bronze for Outdoor Recreation for a story about a new avalanche forecast.

And designer Arthur Tanga won a bronze award for the ad he designed for Tyson Remmelg at Subaru Prince George.

“I’d like to congratulate the nominees and my entire team on these achievements,” said owner and publisher Laura Keil. “It truly does take a team to make the newspaper happen each week and I’m blessed to work with great people whose talent and community-mindedness shines through in their work.”
