Press Gazette British Press Awards 2009: The shortlist

The shortlist for this year’s Press Gazette British Press Awards has been published this afternoon.

Some 540 entries were received for this year’s event – the same as last year – and all the national newspaper groups are taking part.

The shortlists were drawn up after the entries were reviewed by 88 judges drawn from senior independent figures from the world of journalism, regional press editors and two nominees from each newspaper title.

The chairman of judges is Society of Editors director Bob Satchwell.

He said: “These may be tough times for Fleet Street but class will always shine through.

“New readers are being won over from around the world, getting the news from all the different platforms newspapers are providing.

“This is because of the amazing talents, skill and dedication of displayed by the British journalists shortlisted for these awards.

“Despite the recession there’s been no decline in the quality of entries for these awards and the judges had a hugely difficult time choosing the best of the best to make the shortlists.”

The winners for each category will be decided after a second stage judging day involving five-member juries made of two representatives from the national press, two independent judges and one regional newspaper editor.

The winners will be revealed at the awards night on 31 March at Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

The event is again being hosted by Jon Snow.

There will be no shortlist for newspaper of the year. The winner for that category will be announced at the ceremony on 31 March.

Where there are more than six names on a shortlist it is because of a tie in the votes cast by judges.
