'Evening Standard' wins top awards
Saturday 30 October 2010
The Independent's sister newspaper, the London Evening Standard, has won two of the most prestigious accolades in publishing, being named Media Brand of the Year and also receiving the Grand Prix Gold at the Media Week awards.
The Standard beat the Financial Times, YouTube, Spotify and The Sun to win Brand of the Year at Thursday night's Grosvenor House ceremony.
It took the Grand Prix, which is awarded to the best media organisation across all prize categories, by beating Channel 4, the Telegraph Media Group and Guardian News & Media.
The judges said in their citation that the Standard had "quite simply ... stunned the market. Not just for the act of going free, but because editorial quality has been maintained, circulation has almost trebled and advertisers have responded favourably.
"Here is a media brand restored to health."
The Standard is owned by the Lebedev family, which also owns Independent Print Limited, the parent company of The Independent and The Independent on Sunday.
