The shortlists have been announced for this year’s Environmental Journalism Awards organised by Wilmington in association with Peugeot and Press Gazette.
Dan McDougall is shortlisted twice for his work with the Sunday Times – in the journalist of the year category and in story of the year for his investigation into a Gap clothing factory. And the Sunday Times leads the nominations overall with six shortlisted entries.
The top award of environmental journalist of the year carries a cash prize of £1,000.
The awards are judged by Paul Charman, head of journalism at the London College of Communications, Anita Syvret of Syvret Media, Justin Rowlatt from the BBC and Chris Shearlock from the Co-Op. The winners will be announced at a lunch being held at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons restaurant on 25 November.
