ShowBiz Reporter of the Year

Category Information

Judges will be looking at scoops that led the pack and cut through the PR spin with stories that get to the heart of the subject. Entries can come from news reporters, feature writers and columnists. Exclusive stories will score highly but judges will also look for lively writing, dedication and the ability to get behind the scenes with the stars of stage, screen, TV and the music industry.

Entries can be made for work published in print, website, online, mobile, video, audio or any other news delivery format in any UK national newspaper or any news website or platform covering UK national news during 2017.
