Entry deadline extended for Regional Press Awards for 2017
28/02/2018

The deadline for entries for the Regional Press Awards for 2017 has been extended until Monday 12 March 2018. 

Those wishing to enter now have until a week on Monday to get their entries in for the awards, organised by the Society of Editors and held in association with HoldtheFrontPage.

The SoE has also announced a reduction in ticket prices for this year’s event to £70 from £80 last year, while entry fees remain at £25+VAT.

Executive director Ian Murray said: “We know budgets are tight in the regional press, which is why we have gone the extra mile to keep costs down and even reduce the price of a place at the awards in May compared to last year when the ticket cost was held even then.

“With recognition that newsrooms have changed in the regional press through the addition of new digital categories recognising excellence and also the innovation taking place in the industry, the Society has truly brought these awards into line with what the local press requires.”

The awards will be handed out a glittering lunchtime ceremony on Friday 18 May at the IET London, Savoy Place. The awards are sponsored by Camelot, UK Power Networks, JTI, United Utilities, Cision, HoldTheFrontPage, Press Association, News Media Association and Journalists' Charity.
