Sun Media struck out at the 2010 National Newspaper Awards ceremony in Ottawa Friday night.
In the sea of NNA winners and runners-up, the Belleville Intelligencer and Sarnia Observer were both runners-up in Local Reporting, the Intelligencer for coverage of the Russell Williams crime spree and Tara Jeffrey of the Observer for local stories about youth suicide.
On the Toronto front, the Globe and Mail won the most awards - five - and the Toronto Star picked up three main awards at the NNA's 62nd annual awards ceremony at Ottawa's Canadian War Museum.
For all of its front page exclusives, the Toronto Sun has been rather quiet on the NNA front in recent years.
