The Langley Times has been nominated for a pair of Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards.

Dan Ferguson has been nominated in the Spot News Photo Award (circulation over 25,000)  category for his photograph of an injured man being tended to by paramedics following a flipped semi-trailer truck on the freeway last January.

This is Ferguson’s second straight year as a finalist in the category and he won top spot in 2016.

The Times is also one of the three finalists in the Special Section Award (circulation over 25,000) for Homegrown (Click on link and turn to page 17).

The special section featured some of rural Langley’s agricultural treasures.


Altogether, more than a dozen Black Press newspapers are up for various Ma Murray Awards.

The winners will be announced on April 29 at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond.
