The Grand Prix, which goes to the news media brand that brings together the most cohesive and compelling print-digital-business offering to the market, went to The Sun, with judges commenting that “The Sun has great commercial nous and is bold, brash and innovative.”

Gary Cullum, director of newsawards, says: “With our free press under attack from those in the corridors of power and those who would shackle or seek to censor us, we need our purveyors of quality journalism and hard-hitting headlines as much as ever before. This year’s crop of winners and nominations is testament to the fact that ours is a resilient and strong industry that is pioneering and innovating both online and in print.
