Two reporters and a columnist at the Winnipeg Free Press have received nominations for the 2013 National Newspaper Awards.

Gordon Sinclair Jr. has been nominated in the short feature category for his profile of 83-year-old Alexander "Sandy" Turnbull, who died in December after spending most of his life in care facilities.

Bill Redekop has been nominated for business writing for a two-part series on the rise and fall of the Internet pharmacy business in Manitoba.

Randy Turner has been nominated for sports writing for his stories about unregulated hockey leagues for elite young players, the future of curling in rural Manitoba, and the unhealthy habit of chewing tobacco by hockey players.

The Free Press was tied with the Calgary Herald and National Post with three nominations.

Ian Hitchen, a reporter with the Free Press’ sister newspaper, the Brandon Sun, was also nominated under the category Local Reporting for his stories about allegations that children in an Old Order Mennonite community had been physically abused, including with a cattle prod.

The Globe and Mail had the most nominations with 14 while the Toronto Star followed with 13 nominations, Montreal’s La Presse had nine, and The Canadian Press had four.

There were a total of 69 finalists in 22 categories chosen from 1,206 entries.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Charlottetown, PEI, on May 30.
