British Journalism Awards 2019

The good and the great are celebrated at the annual Press Gazette awards ceremony. 

At a gala dinner in London yesterday, journalists from across the news industry came together to celebrate the year’s biggest stories and the people behind them.

Investigation of the Year went to The Telegraph Investigation Team led by Claire Newell with their work on Britain’s #MeToo scandal and their court battle to tell the story about retail tycoon Philip Green.

The judges commented: “This was brave journalism which required a huge amount of impressive research and a good deal of dogged determination to see it through.”

Daily Mirror picked up the award Campaign of the Year for Helen’s Law that denies parole to killers who refuse to reveal where they dump victims’ bodies.

The judges said: “This was campaigning journalism at its best. Fiona Duffy stuck with this story like a limpet over many years and has achieved a result.”

The Sunday Times journalist Decca Aitkenhead picked up Interviewer of the Year, with judges commenting: “Aitkenhead goes deeper into her subjects than you expect and gets information out that goes far beyond the PR. She is absolutely at the top of her game and stands out in a varied field of top quality writers.”
