Press Gazette's Save Our Sources campaign shortlisted for British Media Awards

Press Gazette has been shortlisted for a second award in two days for the Save Our Sources campaign.

Press Gazette has been made a finalist in the British Media Awards' editorial campaign of the year category, alongside BBC Worldwide, The Guardian and Vice among others.

Yesterday, Save Our Sources was made a finalist in the Paul Foot Award, which is organised by Private Eye and The Guardian.

Press Gazette’s campaign to protect confidential journalistic sources launched following the publication of the Met Police’s 56-page Operation Alice Closing Report on the Plebgate affair. Press Gazette picked up on a detail in the report that revealed the force had secretly seized the telephone phone records of The Sun’s newsdesk and political editor to track down police officers who lawfully leaked details of former Government chief whip Andrew Mitchell’s altercation outside 10 Downing Street.

Save Our Sources called for action to ensure that police could no longer view journalists’ phone records without the approval of a judge. It highlighted further police abuse of surveillance powers against journalists, persuaded more than 1,700 readers to sign a petition and was cited by the Interception of Communications Commissioner’s Office (IOCCO) when it launched an inquiry on 6 October.

On 4 February the IOCCO called for a change in the law providing judicial oversight of police requests to view journalist’s phone records. This, the central demand of the Save Our Sources campaign, now has the backing of the Government. The IOCCO’s report revealed that UK police had viewed the phone records of 82 journalists in order to find their sources over the last three years.
