Strip among top three in Ontario for photographer and photo layout

Grand Bend Strip publisher/editor/photographer Casey Lessard has been named one of the three best photographers among Ontario’s community newspapers, the Ontario Community Newspapers Association announced Thursday. The OCNA also named the Strip’s photo page from the Parkhill fair (with photos by Casey Lessard) one of the three best in the province. The winners will be announced April 5, 2008 in Toronto.
This is the second year Lessard has been among the top three for the photographer of the year category at the OCNA awards; he was named second best in 2007 for his work with the Haliburton Echo. Lessard took top honours last year in the feature photo category for a photo from the high school prom.
