Support the Society of Editors #LoveLocalMedia campaign

Support the Society of Editors #LoveLocalMedia campaign and Regional Press Awards

In the run up to the Regional Press Awards for 2019, the Society of Editors launched an online campaign to highlight the tremendous work of local press.

Marking the start of the campaign, a video short was launched to be shared on social media platforms to amplify the important work of regional journalism.

You can still join in now and share what you love about your local paper using the hashtag #LoveLocalMedia on Twitter. 

It could be a picture with your local newspaper, sharing the link to your favourite article this week, or a campaign you feel has really made a difference to a community.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #LoveLocalMedia and tag @EditorsUK in your posts. 

Executive Director of the SoE, Ian Murray commented: “The regional press has never been more needed and recent events have shown how vital a role it plays in our communities. The Regional Press Awards are our way of shining a light on the tremendous excellence that exists in the journalism created by local titles.”

Please spread the word to your team and papers! You can share the campaign video here today.

The Society of Editors organises the awards on behalf of the industry and is supported by: headline sponsor Facebook Journalism Project; Camelot since 2001; Amazon Prime Video; Google News Initiative; Cision; PA, HoldTheFrontPage; Luther Pendragon and the Journalists’ Charity.
