newsawards 2020 was one of the many casualties of the Covid-19 lockdown, but the organisers have announced the winners in those categories where the judging had been completed.

newsawards 2020: winners that beat the virus lockdown

Until the event reconvenes next May, newsawards is announcing the truncated results of newsawards 2020, produced in association with Fujifilm and PJ.

Gary Cullum, director of newsawards, says: “It’s such a shame that we are not able to announce all of the category winners this year. We had hundreds of outstanding entries and I’d just like to thank everyone who entered the 2020 Awards for all their time and effort. We’re looking forward to working with you all on next year’s event.

“I’d also like to give special thanks to our sponsors who have stuck with us through these enormously difficult times for the industry. We are determined to deliver a really special event in 2021, when we can all celebrate all the great things the news media industry has to offer now and into the future.”
