The Sunday Post flies the flag at UK Press Awards

The Sunday Post’s campaigning journalism has been shortlisted at the prestigious UK National Press Awards.

Led by chief reporter Marion Scott, the Hear Our Voice campaign calling for the appointment of a Scottish patients’ champion has been shortlisted for Campaign of the Year.

And an investigation by senior writer Laura Smith into failing mental health care for young Scots has been shortlisted for the Hugh Cudlipp Award, named in honour of the legendary Daily Mirror editor and recognising “excellence in popular journalism”. The special report provoked ministerial pledges of funding and action.

The Post is the only Scottish newspaper shortlisted in the Society of Editors awards, considered the Oscars of British journalism, to be held digitally at the end of the month.

The Hear Our Voice campaign, which was also shortlisted in the British Journalism Awards, was launched in the wake of a damning report by Baroness Cumberlege into how women damaged by mesh implants and other treatments were failed by the health system and their voices silenced.

In August, the Scottish government announced a patients’ safety champion would be appointed as Baroness Cumberlege’s review team hailed our campaign as “journalism at its best. Vitally important, well-researched, and powerfully written.”

Meanwhile, our P.S. supplement has already been named Supplement of the Year at the 2020 PPA Scottish Magazine Awards.
