Success for 'Independent on Sunday' writers

Click to follow
INDEPENDENT on Sunday writers have achieved outstanding success in the British Press Awards, the most prestigious competition for journalists.

Allison Pearson, our television critic, was voted Critic of the Year. The judges were 'dazzled' by her 'idiosyncratic wit and wisdom'. Her first place 'is all the more creditable for gleaming out from brilliant competition'. Read her today on page 21.

Zoe Heller was Highly Commended as Magazine Writer of the year, for her features in the Sunday Review. Today she interviews Steven Spielberg.

Earlier this year Ian Jack, editor of the IoS, became National Newspaper Editor of the Year in the Newspaper Industry Awards; and the paper was voted National Sunday Newspaper of the Year in the Media Yearbook Awards.
