National press newspaper of the year shortlist announced

The final shortlists for this year’s Press Awards have been announced including Newspaper of the Year and Scoop of the Year.

The Newspaper of the Year will fought between the Daily Mail, i, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and The Times.

There are three nominations for Scoop of the Year: The Daily Telegraph’s Cheating the system: how examiners tip off teachers, The Guardian’s Milly Dowler phone-hacking revelations and The Sunday Times’ story on Chris Huhne’s speeding points.

Chairman of the judges Bob Satchwell, executive director of the Society of Editors said: ‘Those who dismiss 2011 as less than a good year for the newspaper industry should take heed of the awards judges.

‘They know from hours of reading and deliberations over entries that British national newspaper readers are still served by the world’s most vibrant and diverse press.

‘Despite unprecedented attention and negative comment the papers and their journalists produced many terrific stories that informed and entertained, playing a vital role in our democracy.

‘Panels of independent judges and those nominated by their newspapers have pored over more than 650 entries to produce the shortlists. They have had the privilege of seeing and reading a mountain of brilliant journalism.”
