5th December 2012


The British Journalism Awards were held at Stationers’ Hall in London last night (4 December).

The Guardian took home the 'Innovation of the Year' prize for the Reading the Riots series, a collaboration between The Guardian and the London School of Economics, which included hundreds of interviews with those involved, as well as data analysis of statistics and Twitter messages.

The Sunday Times' chief sports writer, David Walsh, won two awards, including 'Sports Journalist of the Year' and 'Journalist of the Year'.

The awards also recognised Walsh’s former Sunday Times colleague, foreign correspondent Marie Colvin, who passed away while reporting in Syria in February 2012. Colvin won a special award for inspiring a generation of journalists, "young and old”.

The British Journalism Awards uniquely pits broadcasters, B2B publishers, national and regional press and online-only publishers against each other.
