The National Newspaper Awards, Canada's premium print media Oscars, are expected to be announced today between 1 and 2 p.m.
For nominees, their efforts chosen from 1,385 entries in 22 categories, it will be a brighter day and a much needed boost.
We're hoping for some recognition of entries submitted by Sun Media's beleaguered employees in the 2008 NNA nominations.
Not to wave the bloodied Sun Media banner, but to showcase the professionalism of survivors of 10 years of Quebecor carnage.
Sun Media has axed the 2008 Dunlop Awards, but it can't diminish the need to succeed in newsrooms across the country.
Good luck to all nominees. Winners will be announced May 22 in Montreal.
