Final shortlists for the British Press Awards - Press Gazette

Final shortlists for the British Press Awards

The terrible and tragic events of September 11 and the aftermath dominated entries for the British Press Awards 2002.
After two days of judging at the Press Association headquarters in London, 78 judges from the national press have chosen their winners.
Chairman Jonathan Grun, editor of PA, said: "The judges have particularly asked that we mention the incredibly high standard of entries this year that reflect the dedication and professionalism of our national newspaper journalists, subs and production staff.  Just looking at the entries spread across the table made us all very proud of our national press."
The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at London’s Hilton Hotel in Park Lane, hosted by John Bird and John Fortune of Channel 4’s Bremner, Bird and Fortune fame. For table bookings please contact Angie Reid on 020 8565 4392 or on email at
