Press Gazette events

Press Gazette’s flagship event is the British Journalism Awards in association with TSB.

Held at Stationers’ Hall at the start of December, this event uniquely recognises great journalism across the media which is in the public interest.

The British Journalism Awards are open to all journalists wherever they work: broadcast, print and online.

Last year around 250 of the UK's leading journalists gathered to see Michael Gillard of The Sunday Times named Journalist of the Year

The Social Media Journalism Awards are a series of prizes recognising journalists who excel on these new digital platforms.

The top 50 reporters on social media were named at a drinks reception in April 2014, with Peter Jukes the winner.

In June 2014, Press Gazette named the 50 most influential UK reporters on social media – with Piers Morgan coming first.

The Social Media Journalism Awards are decided by a unique mixture of crowd-sourcing, emperical research and input from an expert panel of judges.


In June 2014, Press Gazette hosted the first in a series of new legal conferences aimed at journalists and those who work in media law. Defamation 2014 drew many of the leading names in media law to the Hippodrome Casino to explain what the new Defamation Act means for journalists. The keynote speaker was one of the architects of the act, Lord Lester QC.
