Ladybugs lionized


This ladybug family was honored last week with an award of excellence from the Society of News design 30th annual competition, one of 32 awards garnered by La Presse, placing this French language broadsheet in fifth place in the world, behind respected papers such as the New York Times. The illustration is on the cover of the 2008 Summer Arts section.

La Presse is one of Montreal's four dailies – you read right, FOUR dailies in this city – 3 published in French and one in English. To see all the 971 awards (out of over 10,000 entries from 42 countries) you'll have to wait until the book comes out this Fall.
