Launched in 2012, the British Journalism Awards are unique among the major journalism prizes in the UK in that it is open to all journalists working across all types of media to celebrate and promote great journalism which is both interesting to the public and in the public interest.
The judges are chaired by Dominic Ponsford, editor-in-chief of journalism bible Press Gazette
He said: “The British Journalism Awards is an event which is unashamedly idealistic in its aims, but this doesn’t mean great popular journalism won’t be recognised.
“Crucially, the British Journalism Awards will recognise the best journalists of the year regardless of the medium they work on – be it print, online or broadcasting.”
