Archant titles win multiple prizes at Regional Press Awards
Archant celebrates once again, receiving six winners and two highly commended at this year’s Regional Press Awards, as journalists were honoured for their work during 2020.
The awards, designed to recognise excellence throughout the regional and local print and online media, were organised by the Society of Editors.
EDP editorial designer Georgia Robinson won not only one, but two awards, being named Designer of the Year for both Newspapers and Magazines/Supplements, while the EDP itself received Supplement/Section of the Year for its magazine The Business.
Nancy Fallows was highly commended twice for Designer of the Year for both Newspapers and Magazines/Supplements.
Young Journalist of the Year – an award sponsored by Amazon, was won by Safrron Walden Reporter and Dunmow Broadcast’s Andra Maciuca.
Emily Townsend received Daily/Sunday Reporter of the Year, recognised for her work with EADT and Ipswich Star. Whilst Charles Thomson won Weekly Reporter of the Year for his investigations work.
Society of Editors executive director Dawn Alford said: “The work done by the journalists, photographers, designers and editors showcased in these awards is inspiring.
“In such a difficult period of time, their work has been essential in keeping the public informed, campaigning on issues, making us laugh and making us cry.”
Archant CEO Lorna Willis said “I’m absolutely delighted that once again our colleagues have been recognised for their outstanding work in a year when our communities have relied on local media like never before. To win awards across the board is a testament to their talent and hard work.”
