British Journalism Awards

Press Gazette’s first British Journalism Awards took place last night.  They are different from the British Press Awards as they aim to promote and celebrate great journalism which is interesting to the public AND in the public interest.  Certainly in the context of Leveson it is a timely reminder that journalism can be a force for good and there were some very worthy winners.  The Sunday Times’ chief sports reporter David Walsh won Journalist of the Year for his 13-year investigation into Lance Armstrong which reached such a dramatic conclusion this autumn.  The FT’s economics editor Chris Giles picked up the Business Journalist of the Year award for this profile of Sir Mervyn King.  It was not just a revelatory account of the inner workings of the Bank of England, but one that was hugely thorough and took him several months to complete.  A list of all the winners is available here.
