Scottish journalists to boycott Scottish Press Awards

Journalists at the Scotsman Group are considering boycotting next year’s Scottish Press Awards in protest over proposed cost cutting at their group and also due to the awards’ chairman Donald Martin, reports Media Guardian.

Martin is the newly appointed editor-in-chief of the Glasgow-based Herald & Times Group who made more than 230 journalists redundant at the group just a day after he started his new job.

The National Union of Journalists chapel at Johnston Press’s Scotsman Group unanimously passed a motion against participating in next year’s Scottish Press Award at a meeting yesterday in protest over plans to merge the production operations on the group’s three titles.
