Group rewards best of its regional talent

The best of Trinity Mirror’s regional talent has been recognising at the group’s annual in-house Editorial Awards.

A dozen trophies were handed to titles from across the group, including the Birmingham Evening Mail, which was named Daily/Sunday Newspaper of the Year.

The title was relaunched last year by editor Roger Borrell, and as a result also picked up awards for the most improved news pages and most improved design.

Meanwhile in the weekly newspaper categories the Dover Express was named Weekly Newspaper of the Year and also picked up the award for most improved news pages on a weekly title.

Trinity Mirror’s new chief executive, Sly Bailey, handed out trophies to the winners during a special ceremony, where she congratulated winners and said she was “very impressed” by the quality of all the entries.

Regionals editorial director, Neil Benson, said: “This year’s awards show the talent we have across all our newspapers and it was great to see so many first-class entries.”
