A feature on Nunavut's struggle with crime and poverty, front-line reporting on the Japanese tsunami, and an inside look at a Canadian filmmaker adapting one of the world's greatest postmodern novels – these were just three of The Globe and Mail's journalistic efforts that garnered National Newspaper Awards on Friday.

In total, the paper scooped up eight NNAs – considered the industry's top honour – more than any other publication. The Globe received a record 24 nominations for the finalists' list.

"We're proud of all our nominees. Their array of work should be proof positive that newspaper journalism is as good as it's ever been – from courageous overseas reporting and rigorous business journalism to critical commentary and long-form writing," said editor-in-chief John Stackhouse. "If anything, I hope the awards reflect the value that our readers place in original journalism."
