In spite of this year’s difficult circumstances, we are determined that the hard work done by journalists in the regional and local press should not go unrecognised.
Each week day until the winners are announced online on June 19 we will be spotlighting several of the category shortlists and introducing the nominees and their work.
Sign up here to our daily bulletin to receive updates as they are posted.
