Posted on

On Tuesday 14 March the London Hilton, Park Lane Hotel provided the backdrop for the most prestigious event in the industry’s calendar – The National Press Awards.

More than 400 editors, writers and columnists came together to salute the quality and diversity of national newspaper journalism in 2016.

The New European team were presented with the Chairman’s Award which is designed to recognise an individual or body that has made an outstanding contribution to journalism and journalists in any way. The New European was singled out by Chairman Bob Satchwell in recognition of its success and quality journalism.

Matt Kelly, Editor of The New European, said: "The New European team thoroughly deserve this recognition for all their hard work and creativity. As does Archant, which is the only media company I know with the capability and courage to try something so crazy - and make a success of it."

Other big winners on the night included The Times, The Financial Times, The Sunday Times and The Guardian, with The Daily Mail being crowned Newspaper of the Year.
