Journalists have been given an extra three days to enter this year’s Regional Press Awards.
The deadline for submissions, which was due to have been today, has now been extended until midday this Friday.
This year’s awards include several new categories aimed at honouring digital performance – including Digital Live News Reporter of the Year and Data Journalist of the Year.
Other new categories on offer include Magazine of the Year, Magazine Designer of the Year and Free Weekly Newspaper of the Year, as well as The Cathryn Nicoll Interviewer of the Year Award.
The SoE announced last month that broadcaster Nick Ferrari, pictured, will once again host this year’s awards ceremony, to be held at IET London, Savoy Place, on Friday 17 May.
