Deadline extended for Regional Press Awards

Posted on: March 4, 2021 by admin

The deadline for entries for the Regional Press Awards has been extended to April 30.

The awards celebrate the best of UK regional and local journalism for 2020 and include categories from Newspaper and News Website of the Year to prizes celebrating digital excellence and the work of individual reporters, designers and photographers.

The awards will also include a Chairman’s Special 2020 Award to recognise individual journalists, teams and support staff who have gone that extra, extra mile to ensure their publications/websites continued to function during the crisis. The Society will be collating and reporting on these stories during the countdown to the awards which will take place later this year.

Submissions can be made via the awards site until 23.59 on 30 April and it would be appreciated if entries could be made as early as possible.

In the meantime, any queries should be directed to

Good luck with your entries!
