Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards

Event Management


The B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Association is a consortium of 122 local papers from across the province. Each year, the achievements of member papers are honoured in 44 separate categories at the Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards Gala. Curve was brought in to “re-invent” the annual Gala, which had been experiencing a steady decrease in attendance and sponsorship revenue.



Curve’s involvement has led to enormous growth in all areas of the event over the past five years. With increased award submissions year after year, the 2011 awards event saw member participation reach a record-breaking 80 per cent. Attendance has increased by 35 per cent and the Association has also experienced a 40 per cent rise in sponsorship dollars!

Curve took care of all the catering, speakers, graphics, awards, judges, and every other aspect of event management. Our dedication to the awards ceremony makes us an ideal choice for many companies looking for a prestigious sponsorship.

From 2012 to 2015, the numbers continue to grow as the “Ma Murrarys”, as they are commonly called, become progressively more coveted among members. The Gala’s reputation has made it one of the highlights of the year for the BCYCNA and industry associates.
