Awards success for The Independent
Wednesday 22 February 2012
The Independent's journalism has been recognised with a string of nominations for prestigious awards.
Our groundbreaking work in opening up the secretive and unaccountable Court of Protection to the public gaze, led by reporter Jerome Taylor, has been shortlisted for the Paul Foot Award for outstanding campaigning journalism. The judges said that the paper's work had shone "a much-needed spotlight on one of Britain's most closed judicial systems".
Three Independent journalists are on the shortlist for the 2012 press awards: Jeremy Laurance, for Specialist Reporter of the Year; Deborah Ross, for Interviewer of the Year; and Laurie Penny, for Young Journalist of the Year. Also nominated are The Independent on Sunday's Matthew Bell, for Diarist of the Year, and Robert Chalmers, for Interviewer of the Year.
And Donald Macintyre, The Independent's Jerusalem correspondent, has been shortlisted in the News category for the One World Media Awards.
