About

Newspapers Canada, representing both daily and community newspapers in Canada, takes the opportunity each year to celebrate outstanding advertising in the industry.

The Extra Awards began by celebrating newspaper advertising. But newspapers now offer so many other opportunities for advertising and promotion. The awards have expanded to include all digital offers as well as other innovative solutions such as newspaper run events, email programs and more.

A new panel of judges is selected from the Canadian advertising agency community each year. They provide their valuable expertise and insights to determine the industry winners which are honoured with: Gold, Silver, Bronze or Honourable Mention. A Best of Show ad or campaign is also chosen and featured as the best work undertaken that year.

Extra winners are announced each September. We encourage you to view prior winners (which go back to 2000) on our site:
