Shortlists revealed for Scottish Press Awards

The shortlists for the Scottish Press Awards were announced today by the Scottish Daily Newspaper Society.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony hosted by Lorraine Kelly at the Glasgow Radisson SAS Hotel on 19 April.

Charles Wilson, chair of Judging Panel, said: “Competition in the Scottish newspaper market, always the strongest in the UK, has become even more intense in recent times because of the increase in resources being spent by London-based groups on their Scottish editions. Journalistic quality thrives on such competition and this is richly reflected in this year’s near record entry for the Scottish Press Awards.”
