Media Awards News RSS

There are now an ever-increasing number of regional and national industry awards providing recognition for the hard work journalists put in to producing newspapers each day.

HoldtheFrontPage helps run two major awards schemes – the UK-wide Society of Editors’ Regional Press Awards, and the EDF Energy Regional Media Awards which cover the South West, East of England and London and South-East regions.

Whatever the award, whether it be for specialist writing or UK-wide events, we will strive to cover them in this section.
