From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The British Press Awards is an annual ceremony that celebrates the best of British journalism. Established in the 1970s, honours are voted on by a panel of journalists and newspaper executives. A financially lucrative part of the Press Gazette's business[1], they have been described as "the Oscars of British journalism", or less flatteringly, "The Hackademy Awards".[2]

For 2006, the judging process has two stages with Charles Wilson as Chairman of the Judges. The first stage chooses five entries for the shortlists of each category & the second stage determines the winners. The Supplement of the Year, Cartoonist of the Year and Front Page of the Year categories are judged by independent panels of experts. Newspaper of the Year is now judged on an Academy-style voting system. The judging forum comprises 80 senior staff journalists and a Grand Jury of 20 non-affiliated senior media executives representing each of the national newspaper groups.[3]
