Broadview takes top honours at faith-based publishing awards

The publication’s journalism, illustrations and design were recognized at 2021 CCCA and ACP awards ceremonies


Broadview was named top magazine and website by the Canadian Christian Communicators Association (CCCA) and top magazine by the Associated Church Press (ACP), at two different ceremonies this week. The publication also received 29 other honours from these two associations.

Among the wins were 17 prizes at the CCCA Awards, including the A.C. Forrest Memorial Award for excellence in socially conscious religious journalism Wednesday night. Each year, the CCCA hands out awards for the highest-quality examples of writing and reporting in the community.

On Thursday, Broadview won 11 awards of excellence and merit along with four honourable mentions at the Associated Church Press Awards (ACP). The ACP Awards honour faith communicators’ best work in the previous year.

Broadview thanks both organizations for their recognition of its work, which you can read below:
