British Journalism Awards is open for entries

This year’s event will be held virtually for the first time ever.

The annual awards celebrate the incredible work journalists are doing across various mediums.

The deadline for entries is 30 September and the shortlist will be announced 14 November.

Now in its ninth year, the awards will take place on 9 December on a virtual event platform.

Chairman of judges and Press Gazette editor-in-chief Dominic Ponsford said: “The pandemic has been one of the greatest challenges ever thrown at the British journalism industry.

“News outlets have scrambled to cover the biggest story of our lives whilst also addressing the harsh economic challenges posed by coronavirus.

“The 2020 British Journalism Awards will be a special event, hopefully closing the chapter on a tough period – but also celebrating the best of the amazing journalism which has come out of it.

“As ever, the judging process will be utterly impartial and independent and will look for journalism which shows skill and rigour, is revelatory and which makes a difference for the better in society.”
