Yesterday’s Cape Times front page has been selected for showcasing at the prestigious Newseum in Washington, DC, as one of the top 10 in the world on the day.
It is the fifth time since February 18 last year that the paper has been selected for The Newseum’s “Today’s Front Pages” exhibit.
Newspaper front pages are selected for interesting headlines, breaking news content and captivating photos.
Newseum director of public relations, Jonathan Thompson, said the institution received more than 800 digital front pages each morning.
“Newseum visitors love to read front pages from around the country and the world, and we’re grateful for the Cape Times’s continued participation,” he said.
Cape Times editor Aneez Salie said: “It is really heartening that the honouring of our front pages by the Newseum, five now, has proven to be no flash in the pan.
“In fact, many papers here and abroad are adopting our style, which is very humbling.
“It also negates the efforts of those who sought to rubbish the change in ownership, leadership and ethos at the Cape Times and Independent Newspapers, who predicted we would fall.”
