The Cudlipp Award - Campaign of the Year


This award is organised by the British Journalism Review

Category Information

The award, in partnership with the British Journalism Review, commemorates the journalism of the great editor and editorial director Hugh Cudlipp and recognises the Campaign of the Year. It is open to all editors, writers or teams of journalists. It can include campaigns which led to a law change and popular campaigns that captured the nation’s attention and achieved tangible results. This award is judged by a separate BJR panel of distinguished journalists who reserve the right to include nominations of their own.

The entry process for the Cudlipp Award is the same as for the general categories. 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.
