“Clean typography and well-structured homepage,” the judge wrote. “Good use of photography and smooth mobile experience. Smart content and very readable.”

Month after month, the Courier’s website is attracting more readership. With multitude of news and feature stories posted every day, we have more than 450,000 unique visitors — and growing — each month.

Since you’re reading this on the Vancouver Courier’s website, you’ve probably already discovered this for yourself but, if you need reminding, here are some of the factors that go into creating Canada’s best community newspaper site.

• Evocative storytelling with words and video: Vancouver master watchmaker keeps on ticking. This story earned the team of Dan Toulgoet, Michael Kissinger and John Kurucz came in third as the Best Multi-media Feature.

• Insightful analysis of Vancouver City Hall: 12th & Cambie

• Daily coverage to inform your understanding of Vancouver’s real estate scene: Courier real estate news

• Honest but respectful year-round coverage of the Vancouver Canucks: Pass It To Bulis

• Light-hearted and, yes, we’ll admit it, occasionally barbed insights into Vancouver life: Kudo & Kvetches

• Regional reporting from across the Lower Mainland featuring stories from our sister publications: Vancouver Is Awesome, Business in Vancouver, North Shore News, Richmond News, Burnaby Now, New Westminster Record, TriCity News, Delta Optimist, Squamish Chief and Bowen Island Undercurrent.

• Viral videos: The Blob of Lost Lagoon

• And a vibrant social media presence: Facebook (where you can find more of our award-winning videos), Twitter and Instagram (which features glimpses of what makes us love Vancouver — and sometimes drives us crazy.)
