Jewish News has been shortlisted for the prestigious Society of Editors’ Regional Press Awards for 2019 across three categories – Innovation and Initiative of the Year, Magazine of the Year and the coveted Free Weekly Newspaper of the Year.
The awards celebrate the best of British regional and local newspaper journalism in 2019 for print and online.
The ceremony, originally due to be held on 5 June, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. SoE executive director Ian Murray said: “Today’s shortlists reveal a huge wealth of talent in the regional press. We will be announcing the winners two weeks from today on Friday, June 19.”
Jewish News editor Richard Ferrer said: “To go from ‘highly commended’ at last year’s awards to being shortlisted in three categories including Free Newspaper of the Year is an enormous tribute to my talented and dedicated team. It’s lovely to get some good news at this difficult time.”
